Re: XFS breakage in 2.6.18-rc1

That looks like the death knell of my /, which succumbed on Friday as
a result (I believe) of the corruption bug that was in 2.6.16/17.
Ironically enough, I also saw the problem during an aptitude upgrade.

Hi all,

I just want to confirm this bug as well and unfortunately it was my
system disk too who had to take the hit. Im running 2.6.16 and its
reproducible in 2.6.17 and 2.6.18-rc1 as well. When I tried to repair
the fs I got the same error as in the previous post, running xfsprogs
2.8.4. I haven't had the time to debug this issue further because the
box is quite critical but I'll keep an eye on the other disks on the
system still running xfs.
