At leas twice my 4.9-RELEASE has died and upon trying to reboot, I've gotten stalled and thrown into single-user mode and asked to fsck by-hand. fsck -y has worked so far---it failed once this morniing; then worked. I've found some bad, partially-allocated inodes. fsck rm'd/cleared these and I lost several essential files. I've been up/booted since around 10.00 and have been been tarballing and scp'ing things to other servers... just in case. -STABLE seemed to be stable, surprise:), but then, who knows? It's a 3-year-old IDE and it might have been bumped. (?) > > > Suggestions?
