BTRFS mkfs+mount fails with ALT kernel [solved]

Trying to create a new BTRFS on a partition fails sometimes, i.e. mkfs.btrfs /dev/sda mount /dev/sda /mnt gives btrfs failed to recover reloation .... open_ctree failed. I'm not sure if it's a kernel bug or a bug in sys-fs/btrfs-progs. It seems to have been fixed in October 2012. See http://www.mail...

Re: CDROM is locked when shutting down

sometime auto eject and key press can make problems. http://www.sysresccd.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1812 Gernot When I use the GRML64 rescue CD and say halt or reboot, I get a message to remove the CD from /dev/sr0. Only then the system shuts down completely. Isn't that possible with SystemRes...

The IP was correct.

boot you with the nonm option? NetworkManager can change the IP.

I can confirm that with 3.4.0-beta10 the problem has gone.

Re: [wish] please add app-arch/star

It has been added, thanks Thanks! Unfortunately, the current version suffers from a buffer overrun. Not only on the current rescue system but on all recent Gentoo systems - see https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=409165 So, please upgrade to the 1.5.2 version from today. Sorry for the inconveni...

[wish] please add app-arch/star [solved]

star (from app-arch/star) is a faster alternative to tar especially when copying complete directory trees.
It has more features, esp. a built-in find command and compare command.
It has a small footprint (353Kb) and is statically linked.

Thanks for considering,
Helmut.

CDROM is locked when shutting down

If I don't option to cache everything my CDROM drive is locked.
Other rescue CDs issue a message to eject the CD just before rebooting.
Isn't this possible with SystemRescueCD, as well?

Thanks,
Helmut.

net-setup for fixed IP is broken [solved]

Since a few version include 3.3.0 net-setup is broken invoking net-setup eth0 and choosing fixed IP and entering
134.130.161.249 plus broadcast, netmask and router

I get a wrong IP

ifconfig eth0 shows
134.130.161.98 <<<<

That's not a typo, I verified this several times.

2.5.0-beta004 stiff suffers from the mkbtrfs problem

Hi,

the problem encountered in
https://www.sysresccd.org/forums/viewto ... =13&t=4274

is still there with 2.5.0-beta004.

AFAIR the git-version of btrfs-progs doesn't suffer from this anymore, but I'm not sure.
The work around in the reported cited above works here, too.

Helmut.

kernel 3.2 please

Please release a version with a 3.2 kernel and git btrfs-progs. Even the latest beta is based on the 3.1.x kernel series which has a borken BTRFS implementation. e.g. I can't create a BTRFS on a new partition. Copying a lot data to BTRFS partition fails with "no space left on device" thought 50G a s...
