journal commit I/O error


Hi all,

I need help since I'm quite new to Linux.

My server is showing "Kernel: journal commit I/O error", and new connections are not being allowed. What do I need to do to check what's wrong?

Thanks.

well journal would be refering to your ext3 journaling filesystem on your hard drive, only thing i can suggest is to do a filesystem scan on all your HDD's, sounds like it's on your root filesystem though, so you may need to do a complete re-install with a new root HDD, run fdisk on /dev/hda1 though, assuming that's your root filesystem and you don't duel-boot

Thanks for the reply. Looks like we have a failing raid controller that's causing the error.

journal commit i/o error

I got the same error and tried to google around for the solution but not such luck. I am using fedora 12 at the moment, and this happens quiet often. What can I do to fix it or to re-install the whole OS?

Thanks for your help

have you tried booting from a liveCD and run fsck on your root drive?
