Lately my laptop harddrive has been getting errors or something, with all the terminals showing this repeatedly:
EXT-fs error (device hda3) in start_transaction: Readonly filesystem
I can log in to terminals, ls and stuff, use X but not start new programs, and even log off and reboot (with some things failing due to the readonly filesystem, but rebooting all the same). On startup it'll do a forced hd-check, then give me "UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY RUN fsck MANUALLY", i run fsck and hit y for to fix some orphaned inode thingies, ctrl+d to reboot and it works normally again. This has happened about 3 times the last week, once within an hour of startup with just the last.fm-player and firefox running, once I discovered it like that after it'd been on for about a day. I've had it happen some months earlier, but I have no idea what causes it. Google.com/linux just showed me pages saying "obscure kernel error" ( http://seclists.org/lists/linux-kern.../May/1084.html
) and heavy-duty-geek-sites like that, not much help to me.
uname -a gives:
Linux kiwishiba 2.6.10-5-386 #1 Fri Sep 23 14:13:55 UTC 2005 i686 GNU/Linux
and /etc/fstab has my harddrive as:
/dev/hda3 / ext3 defaults,noatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda1 /boot ext3 defaults,noatime 0 2
/dev/hda5 none swap sw 0 0
Anyone got a clue what to do? Hope I don't have to scrap this HD, now that I finally got a working install heh...
