EXT3FS checking error


Hi everybody,

My system is set to perform filechecking every 64 mounts. (tune2fs -c
64 ) But when checking (e2fsck) this is done, several error messages
appear like this:

Extended attribute block <i> has reference count <n>, should be <m>
Fix?

where:
<i> is a 7 digit integer number;
<n>, <m> are integer numbers where n < m;

Why are there errors in the file system if ALWAYS is shut down
properly?

Regards,

Marco

Hi Marco,

How old is your distro and which distro are you running ? ..
Kernel version would also help ...


cheers

Post System Specs

My system: Fedora Core 3, Linux 2.6.23.12
Celeron 400 MHz, 256 MB RAM, 50 GB HDD.
(I know, I know, it is rather old but it works. ;-) )
Is it related to any kernel driver?

Regards,

Marco.

There were issues with extended attributes a long time back, probably easier to move to a more recent version as yours is not supported any longer. Your machine should be able to handle a current Fed, a little bit of hardening will reduce the number of daemons running which will decrease your memory footprint.

cheers
