    Subjectext2fs repairs
    I'm not sure if this belongs here.
    Please let me know the proper place if not :)

    I boot 2.2pre6 with a new CPU (686MX from 686).
    First boot was fine. Went to Win9x to check new CPU,
    fine. Reboot 2.2. Unable to mount /var (ext2fs on hdb2)
    Ran fsck complained bad-super block. Ran with -b 8193,
    fixed errors, mounted fine. Rebooted to check.

    Failed to mount /var again. Now fsck, mount, and other
    ext2fs utils say not a valid ext2fs, bad magic number.
    I tried fsck again with trhe first 10 superblocks,
    and get the same results.

    Looking at results of 'dd if=/dev/hdb2 bs=1024'
    the magic number is the same as a good ext2fs (0xEF53)
    at same offset from begining of partition.

    Any ideas what is wrong?
    How to fix?
