<br>&gt; &gt;<br>&gt; &gt; Yep.&nbsp;&nbsp;:-(&nbsp;&nbsp;I had been forcing fsck via &quot;/sbin/shutdown -rF 0&quot;, but<br>&gt; &gt; running fsck manually also fails with an SMP kernel:<br>&gt; &gt;<br>&gt; &gt; fsck -sfC /dev/sda1<br>&gt; &gt; fsck -sfC /dev/sda1 /dev/sda5 /dev/sda6

<br>&gt; &gt; Interestingly enough, fsck *does* succeed on sda2 (~2Gb) when it occurs<br>&gt; &gt; during the boot process, but a manual fsck on a filesystem of roughly<br>&gt; &gt; the same size (sda1) fails.<br>&gt; &gt;
