fsck NOT HEALTHY after crash and reinstall [Resolved]
« on: June 09, 2015, 02:11:20 pm »
How worried should I be, everything went pear shaped last night. An old fashioned keyboard handler (grey in colour) appeared in the lxpanel next to the power manager, when I right clicked it to assess what it was, it launched a start-daemon, whereas I was only expecting the info/settings/quit tab. I clicked NO, then the screen froze. (There had been a few minor freezes earlier, with the Plank Dock being finicky). Ctrl + delete didn't work, waited 5 mins then did a hard shutdown. When I got back in I had a American keyboard. Though all language settings were still in English (Preference settings/Libreoffice/gedit etc). The at-sign became quotations and verse-versa, the pound key was a dollar. Performance: or lack of, was akin to wadding through treacle, a garden slug would be had been more agile.

Fresh install, nomodeset will not engage like it did yesterday. Err..okay so far so good I thought, until I carried out the first dmesg.  :'(

This informed me, of a had bug in the BIOS; [    0.000000] ACPI BIOS Warning (bug): Optional FADT field Pm2ControlBlock has zero address or length: 0x0000000000000000/0x1 (20140424/tbfadt-649) and should enable IOMMU in BIOS to release another 64Mb of memory. Which I did. Ran a second dmesg, bug still present.

Ran all programmes from Recovery Mode, then fsck, not good..!   :o

Code: [Select]
fsck from util-linux 2.20.1
fsck from util-linux 2.20.1
/dev/sda1/: 308/62248 files (17.2% non contiguous)104360/248832 block
/dev/mapper/peppermint --vg-root: 233154/14778368 files (0.2% non contiguous) 3403764/59099136 blocks

Finished please press Enter

Run this in terminal after resume boot: cat /var/log/fsck/checkfs

Code: [Select]
tony@tower ~ $ cat /var/log/fsck/checkfs
(Nothing has been logged yet.)

Salvageable or new SSD, motherboard or chipset, whole computer..?   :-\

Not a hardware problem at all .. in fact not even really a software problem .. so you can stop panicking :)

I would like to know how two people now have managed to install ibus...

Can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove -s ibus
that's a simulated run, it will NOT uninstall ibus .. I just want to know what would happen if you removed it for real, that command should tell us.

Hi cavy,


This output  does NOT indicate that there is anything wrong. Actually fsck shows NO problem whatsoever.


Don't worry -- be happy!  :)

Cheers guys, nothing to worry about, that's a relief, I will certainly have to bow to your superior knowledge, does that apply to the BIOS bug.....as well.....?  ;)

Here is the printout from the iBUS test.

Code: [Select]
tony@tower ~ $ sudo apt-get remove -s ibus
[sudo] password for tony:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package 'ibus' is not installed, so not removed
0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 0 not to upgrade.

The only thing different from my usual install and software choices was Google Chrome, downloaded from their home page and the Deb package manager, extracted and installed it.  :D

OK, I'm thoroughly baffled what the keyboard icon in the system tray is then .. any clues in the Task Manager ?

It seem to occur during/after one of several partial, then full screen froze while I was setting up the Plank Dock. That and both Chromium and Chrome both wanted Gmail, control.

First time I actually edited or used the SSB/Ice programme.

ACPI...? Do you mean iBUS issues, not in P5, saw that in Lubuntu, the only trick I knew, was to turn it off.

 Otherwise I found P5 to be solid, I could overload the file manager transferring files and it would sloooow down in protest, and it soldiered on.

Yes, the RESOURCE MONITOR, (P6)I had to remove it from the lxpanel, this was appearing then disappearing every time I opened an app, flash off, then flash back on. Did this about 2 hours before the crash.
Used to like to have this positioned next the menu.  ;)

No it's this that's bothering me

ACPI BIOS Warning (bug): Optional FADT field Pm2ControlBlock has zero address or length: 0x0000000000000000/0x1 (20140424/tbfadt-649) and should enable IOMMU in BIOS

I was wondering if you'd ever seen that in Peppermint 5 ?

If not I'm wondering if its a kernel regression and we shold try going back to the Peppermint 5 kernel and xorg stack

Its possible, this bug is/was the root cause, why I had all that trouble with GPT & efi/boot when I tried to install CentOS 7 and Debian, on this machine. Then made worse by the epic fails I had.

Luckily I managed to pick up a second hand computer and used BIOS legacy to install CentOS 7 and LMDE 2 for my studies, (Debian, if you can install, it doesn't always give you all the necessary firmaware up front).

When I reinstalled P5 mid April, I was never sure how things were going to go. There was and have been the odd murmur, (nothing like the P6 crash), I'm fairly certain this was down to the encrypted  memory stick I was using. Slowing things down, had carefully go through numerous files and open up the permissions. Plus I only found the other day, I had a root file in my "odds and ends folder". I think that may contributed to some annoying moments.

So you're running Peppermint on a USB stick ?

that warning is only really to do with power management.

Which laptop make/model or motherboard make/model are we talking about ?

and can we have the:
Code: [Select]
inxi -F
output please

Hi cavy, for future reference, could you please encapsulate the returned outputs with the code # function.  This can be found in the forum text editor just above the, Embarrassed  :-[ emoticon.  This preserves the formatting of the readout.  Many thanks  ;).

OK cavy, do you want to try going back to the 3.13 kernel ?

Be aware there is always a small risk in doing these things so make sure you've got copies of anything you cannot afford to loose.

Thanks for the heads up Andy, did wonder where that useful item was hidden  ;)

All I need to know now, where is the one for VERBOSE printouts  ;)

Hi PCNetSpec
I have had a gander at the Mint Update Manager, and have used it previously, NORMALLY to upgrade to a newer kernel version, so its select 13.13.40 as a start point..for the regression....?  8)
Could be a worthwhile exercise as a process of elimination.  ;)
