Erm, wha..? Can you expand on "annihilated" a bit? (please send
me the full xfs_repair output if you still have it).
I'm very sorry; I don't have the output anymore. By annihilated I mean
that there were several directories trees that /didn't work/. If you
tried to cd into the directory or take a directory listing... or used a
file that you knew was in these certain directories then you'd get pages
of debug message to the console; and no usable data. I re-ran
xfs_repair and retried several times but the condition never seemed to
improve or get worse for that matter.
I /incorrectly/ figured it was a known issue or I'd have saved the
output. Sorry again.
