  I've seen some reports here about file corruption and suggestions to 
update XFS. I currently am running kernel 2.6.3 on my system, and 
virtually every time my system gets rebooted without shutdown (which 
happens sometime), I get corrupted files. Most often I get just random 
garbage _within_ a file, even though there are no complaints while 
checking filesystem. It happened before with earlier versions of kernel, 
on different computers. Currently I'm running Mandrake 10.0 on Intel 
platform (namely - dell dimension 4400), and at home I run the same 
Mandrake on AMD-64 platform, with exactly the same problem: virtually 
every time I get power failure or unconditional reboot for whatever 
reason - I get corrupted files with random garbage inside. I'm 
reformatting my partitions to JFS later this week, but still would like 
to know if there is a cure for this problem on XFS. I understand that 
this might well be a hardware related problem, but two different 
computers with the same hardware problem? I find it not very likely :)

  Thank you!
