New year 2012 for me began with crashing my Fedora 16. Can anybody please help me with the this?
I've been updating Fedora 16 (x86-64) on my Dell laptop using yum when the kernel suddenly crashed badly with the black screen similar to the blue one in windows. The system became totally unresponsive so I had to hard reboot it. But since then when it started booting it fails with the message: _Fedora-16-x86_6: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY
(see the attached photo for entire message)
The issue I am facing is very similar to this one
, but the fsck message is a bit different. In my case it says:
dracut Warning: _Fedora-16-x86_6: Duplicate or bad block in use!
dracut Warning: _Fedora-16-x86_6: Multiply-claimed block(s) in inode 1487: 1180126 1180127
dracut Warning: _Fedora-16-x86_6: Multiply-claimed block(s) in inode 3281: 1180126 1180127
dracut Warning: _Fedora-16-x86_6: (There are 2 inodes containing multiply-claimed blocks.)

dracut Warning: _Fedora-16-x86_6: /var/lib/rpm/__db.001 (inode #3281, mod time Sun Jan 1 13:52:55 2012)
I tried to fsck /dev/sda*
with no result. Some partitions are Ok, the others are reported to be in use, so fsck cannot check them. I tried touch /forsefsck
, but I get the same message and the shell screen when I reboot.
1. How could that happen that ext4 being journaling filesystem became corrupted so easily because of a stupid kernel panic followed by hard reboot?
How to cure this (if possible) completely without any undesired consequences?
3. If I happen to reinstall the OS, can I choose better filesystem, so that I never fall into such problem again? What about BTRFS or NILFS? I heard they support snapshots allowing easily recovering in cases like this, it that true?
