Today I had my second bite on the arse from having an XFS filesystem under a 2.6.8.1 kernel. A while ago I upgraded my fileserver at home and decided that 2.6.8.1 sounded like a good plan. It tried to eat my filesystem and pure luck and judicious use of temporarily incomplete MD configs saved my 80 gigs of data.

Today my Ubuntu install started being odd. A quick boot into d-i later and a prod around with xfs_check and subsequently xfs_repair and all is well. I am running Debian’s 2.6.7 kernel until I can work out what is up with 2.6.8.1. sigh
