EXT4 Data Corruption Bug Hits Stable Linux Kernels

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTIxNDQ snip I think I've found the problem. I believe the commit at fault is commit 14b4ed22a6 (upstream commit eeecef0af5e): jbd2: don't write superblock when if its empty which first appeared in v3.6.2. The reason why the problem happens rar...

Re: LMDE libc6 dependency

That would explain the problem.
I'm currently running 3.5 Trunk from Debian Experimental. Perhaps I'll just leave it at that :)

Thanks

LMDE libc6 dependency

Ever since kernel 3.4, I run into the following dependency problem with libc6. Trying to track down libc6 triggers dependency hell. Any thoughts? dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of linux-headers-3.6.2-030602-generic: linux-headers-3.6.2-030602-generic depends on libc6 (>= 2.14); howe...

Re: Any Linux vitalization/deep freeze sofware

Kinda sounds like you'd like the snapshots feature of btrfs (filesystem). I have mine set to autosnap whenever I make any changes and then after I fully bork it by playing, I can go in and rename a valid snapshot to @ and reboot.

Re: btrfs issue

Interesting. I've never been able to get LMDE 201204 to format to btrfs using the installer which is why I went the route in the link above. I actually had to check and see if there was a respin of LMDE after you mentioned latest iso. btrfs option is always greyed out when I use the installer. By us...

Re: LMDE upgrade disaster!

What are your sources?

I had no issues other than having to reinstall nvidia when I updated, and I updated during the update pack testing phase.

Re: LMDE Repositories

Make sure you run the post-upgrade tweaks:
http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/update-pack.html

You may also want to run dist-upgrade rather than upgrade when moving to a new update pack.

Re: nvidia issues after update to U5

I believe its always advised to dist-upgrade with LMDE?

Re: LinuxMint or Linux Mint LMDE?

I prefer LMDE so I don't have to 'upgrade' to the next version of Linux Mint (11, 12, 13, etc).
Rolling (to me) means that there is an upgrade path that doesn't require you to have to reconfigure your system each time.

Re: Download Updates Fails

Do we have any idea how many users of LMDE there are?
Do the servers burn down on typical LM (11, 12, 13, etc) version updates?

Are there less mirrors for LMDE than for Vanilla Mint?

So, since UP5 has hit the regular LMDE sources, what should those of us who upgraded during this testing phase do? My system tells me that I have nothing to upgrade although Update Manager tells me that I'm still at UP4. Thanks edit: I just ran mint update again and it does show UP 5 as my system la...

Re: Will installing Mint 13 as a replacement remove partitio

Once you delete the 2 partitions under the extended partition, you should be able to delete it as well.
After you delete everything selected by clicking apply, you will (I'm pretty sure) need to create a new partition on the new partitionless drive before installing Mint 13.

Re: How To: Upgrade your kernel, painlessly.

Just installed 3.4 Generic for LMDE and noticed that there is now a 3.4 Quantal.
3.4 Generic is working fine but I'm curious as to what would be the difference between the two and if it would matter for LMDE.

Any experience with the Intel specific kernels?

Re: Kernel Updates

You can try this to grab the latest 3.3.6 viewtopic.php?f=42&t=40185
It won't remove your current kernel so you can always fall back if it (for some reason) doesn't work.
