Powered up my desktop this morning and noticed I couldn't cd into ~/Mail
dmesg didn't look good. "XFS: Internal error XFS_WANT_CORRUPTED_RETURN"
I rebooted into single user mode, and ran xfs_repair on /dev/sda3 (/home).
It fixed up a bunch of stuff, but ended up eating ~/.procmailrc entirely
(no sign of it in lost & found), and a bunch of filenames got garbled
'december' became 'decemcer' for eg. Looks like a couple kernel trees ended
up in lost & found.
After rebooting back into multi-user mode, I looked in dmesg again to be sure
and this time sda2 was complaining..
Same drill, reboot, xfs_repair. Looks like a bunch of man pages ended up in
lost & found.
Thoughts ? Could sda be dying ? (It is a fairly old crappy ssd)
