ext2fs woes

Post by Bryan Higgi » Tue, 09 Jun 1998 04:00:00

I added

    option "ext2fs"

to the 2.2.6 generic kernel and rebuilt it.  I have two Linux
partitions which I mount as /linux and /linux/usr (fstab entries are
"ro,noauto").  /linux/usr seems fine, but /linux has several
directories for which ls -l and stat return the error "invalid

Another problem is that if I reboot the system with the Linux
partitions mounted, the shutdown procedure can't sync the disks
("giving up," it says) including /, which is clearly a problem.

Am I doing something wrong or omitting some option?  Or is the ext2fs
driver just funkly software?

1. More ext2fs woes...

I'm having some problems running e2fsck on my file system.  It asks if it
is OK to expand the lost+found directory, then exits with a segmentation

This filesystem has been royally hosed, but I am looking to recover a
couple files...  Is it OK to remove files from lost+found to make space for
the others?  Is there another 'fix' for this?  (I'm not looking for the
thing to boot...  Just so I can get my files off.)
