for the second time in a few days, my /home filesystem
(/dev/fc5/home, the name being a holdover when i was running FC5 under
LVM2 on this system) magically reverted to "read-only" status, forcing
me to reboot, at which point i was told:
"Inodes that were part of a corrupted orphan linked list were
requiring e2fsck to fix all sorts of apparent corruption.
once is a bit weird, twice is a definite pattern. has anyone else
seen this lately? kernel is 2.6.18-1.2868.fc6.
p.s. the "mount" command insisted that the filesystem was still
mounted "rw", and trying a "remount" had no effect.
