At leas twice my 4.9-RELEASE has died and upon
trying to reboot, I've gotten stalled and thrown
into single-user mode and asked to fsck by-hand.
fsck -y has worked so far---it failed once this
morniing; then worked. I've found some bad,
partially-allocated inodes. fsck rm'd/cleared
these and I lost several essential files.
I've been up/booted since around 10.00 and have
been been tarballing and scp'ing things to other
servers... just in case.
-STABLE seemed to be stable, surprise:),
but then, who knows? It's a 3-year-old IDE
and it might have been bumped. (?)
