What was the exact error message that you got on the panic?

I've to go home and write it down and then come back to company to send the error messages ;-| (my internet access at home is broken)

Also, does the promise controller do write caching?

I dom't think so, it's such a 'cheap' promise 'FastTrak100 TX2'. I also didn'n find something about caching on theyr website.......

on my 'new' linux-box i've set up an linuxfromscatch system with xfs as root fs on an promise ide raid controller (using /dev/ataraid/dXpY). I use the kernel 2.4.18 with the xfs 1.1 patch.
Often after a (obviously clean) shutdown I have problems with booting into my system. I get a kernel panic saying thast there is something wrong with the log of the xfs filesystem. Than I must reboot with my old SCSI disk and run xfs_repair (often with the -L option ;-( ) to get the system running again.
Some hints what's wrong there? And how to get a working xfs-system without emergency partition ?
