Here is what I get when I run fsck /dev/ad8s1f :
**Last Mounted on /usr
Phase 1 - Check Blocks and Sizes
UNKNOWN FILE TYPE I=2802880
UNEXPECTED SOFT UPDATE INCONSISTENCY
(I answered n to all the remove? [yn] questions)
UNKNOWN FILE TYPE I=3297280
UNKNOWN FILE TYPE I=3297408
INCORRECT BLOCK COUNT I=4008454 (1440 should be 384)
PHASE 2 - Check Pathnames
DUP/BAD I=3297280 OWNER = ROOT MODE=40755 SIZE=8192 MTIME= JUL 21 14:25 2008
Hope this give some useful information.
