random file system corruption

Post by elbarbudo » Wed Sep 11, 2019 3:37 am

I meet the following problem on 2 different machines, but not on some others, so i think this is an hardware issue.

Step to reproduce :
1- play https://www.arte.tv/fr/direct/ on firefox
2- after a certain time (sometimes several hours), the sound disappears !
3- close firefox
4- reboot

On reboot, i get the initramfs prompt.
I found that the root file system was corrupted.
Just running fsck from the initramfs prompt fixed the problem.

Attached is the journalctl showing a kernel problem, but I am unable to interpret it.

Thank you for any help.

Please generate an overview of your system like this:
- Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window);
- make the terminal window full screen, to avoid chopped lines;
- Copy/paste this command into the terminal:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
(if you type: the letter F is a capital letter)

Press Enter.

Copy/paste the output in your next message.
