You know, the strange thing is that I can repeat the process of fsck -y , go through the boot:/recoverying journal until it get stuck... power down, power back up, and repeat the whole process again and again and again... and for some reason, it will eventually recovery everything by itself....
I have recovered improper shut down like this dozen of times... a bit painful because I need to be physicallly there to reboot the machine once a while. Having said that, I have to say i am amused by the fact that this ext3 always managed to recover itself.
As for boot log... can you give me any lead on how to do that? is that any different from reading the dmesg ?
Thanks in advance
