SubjectRe: ReiserFS - corrupted files (2.4.3)
Robert,

That output below is part of the results from

reiserfsck /dev/hde5

(obviously /dev/hde5 is the partition that I checked). I'm
using reiserfsprogs version 3.x.0i. You can run reiserfsck
without any arguments and it can't do any harm to your
partition - it's read-only.

I tried "reiserfsck -x /dev/hde5" but that didn't fix
anything. (the -x switch is supposed to "fix fixable
without having to use --rebuild-tree). But

reiserfsck --rebuild-tree /dev/hde5

fixed the bitmap problem in this case, and it didn't cause
any new problems. Nevertheless, I'm using reiserfs on all
my machines, so I would be glad to help debug the problems
asap - I'm worried about losing a whole partition here and
there eventually. I'd go back to kernel 2.2.18, which is
supposedly very stable, but I can't. It doesn't work for me
on reiserfs partitions created with 2.4.x.

I don't know where to start with debugging, either, but I'm
willing to take instructions.

-Nick
