fsck inode warnings

Helo there, since a while, every time that i use something like "shutdown -Fr now" i receive messages like
that: 

/dev/sda3: Inode 655658 extent tree (at level 2) could be narrower.  IGNORED.
/dev/sda3: Inode 660107 extent tree (at level 1) could be narrower.  IGNORED.
/dev/sda3: Inode 661292 extent tree (at level 2) could be narrower.  IGNORED.
/dev/sda3: Inode 661848 extent tree (at level 2) could be narrower.  IGNORED.
/dev/sda3: Inode 662317 extent tree (at level 2) could be narrower.  IGNORED.
/dev/sda3: Inode 662337 extent tree (at level 1) could be narrower.  IGNORED.
/dev/sda3: Inode 662648 extent tree (at level 1) could be narrower.  IGNORED.
/dev/sda3: Inode 664488 extent tree (at level 1) could be narrower.  IGNORED.
/dev/sda3: Inode 666102 extent tree (at level 1) could be narrower.  IGNORED.
/dev/sda3: Inode 671956 extent tree (at level 2) could be narrower.  IGNORED.

What the meaning of this. I was unable to find something useful to explain these "errors". I already boot
with systemrescuecd and run fsck -f manually, but the warning still appearing.

Best regards

[OT] program compiled with libcrypt on Raspberry PI (running Gentoo) hangs when run

The following code snippet compiles find but when run it just hangs forever:

$ cat x.c
#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <crypt.h>

int main() {
        printf("Running test\n");
        char *encrypted = crypt("blablabla","ab");
        if(!encrypted || strcmp(encrypted,"ab.h7fshjf89f")) {
                printf("Fail\n");
        } else {
                printf("OK\n");
        }
}

$ gcc -o xout x.c -lcrypt

$ ./xout
Running test

<here the program just hangs and needs to be killed with ^C>

The same code runs fine on my desktop.
Any suggestions what could be my problem?

ACPI event unhandled

Hi,
I'm trying to make the special function keys for volume control working  
on an old ASUS K53U laptop working.

xbindkeys does show the event name if I press such a special function  
key. I have modified /etc/acpi/default.sh
to add these button events.

But I always get  ACPI event unhandled PNP0C14:00 000000ff 00000000

I've check that the case  button)  in /etc/acpi/default.sh is not  
entered. It falls through to the last log_unhandled.

Does anybody have an idea what I'm missing?

Many thanks for some hints,
Helmut

booting - I don't anystand how the (Linux) world works anymore

Hi,

I'm a dino since I still use grub-1 but I prefer recent kernels  
(currently 4.70-rc4)

I don't understand  the   'root=' option on the boot line like
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-4.7.0-rc4 root=/dev/sda1

Here my bad experience:

Having booted by SystemRescueCD from the cdrom device, my root device  
is labelled  /dev/sda1
  BUT trying to use that on the kernel boot line fails (the kernel  
cannot find the root file system)

By trial and error I've found that I have to use   root=/dev/sdb1

but if I plug in an external drive (via USB) this doesn't work any more.

So, I came up with    root=UUID=uuid_number of the root file system.

But to my surprise I now got  a kernel panic
syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown block(0,0)

So, please tell me what I'm missing?

Many thanks!!!
Helmut

Me, and how to troll LIKE A BOSS.

Hello, Let me introduce myself again.

I'm 38.

I have no job,

I have not had a job in 4 years.

I can't get a job because I have not had job in 4 years.

Literally, nobody will hire me.

My computer is six years old. All I want it to do is just keep working
the way it did last week.

My health has been declining because I can't afford to take care of myself.

I have no social life either.

I would like to do more with my computer but it is a constant battle of
treading water.

That's why I have zero tolerance for the shit I've been taking from
Gentoo recently. =|

Now, about my trolling style.

The #1 secret of trolling is don't do the trolling yourself. The most
powerful troll possible is to engineer a chain reaction on a list and
then use the most well engineered provocation possible to set it off

Kaffeine update: Missing channels and no sound :(

Hi,

recently an update to kaffeine via emerge was installed on my Gentoo
PC. Since I am using no other DVBT-viewer I was happy for the update.
But I was wrong.

All channel settings were deleted and I had to rescan again -
including removing unwanted ones...

Then at least one channel is missing.

And there is no sound and I do not find any settings which may be
tweaked to get sound back.

I rescan with this command from the command line:
sudo scan-dvb -n -o zap -p /usr/share/dvb/dvb-t/<region file> >! mychannels.conf

and grepped through the output: Far more channels and the missing one
was also there.

For all I did not change the hardware and there is only one
DVBT-capable device in my PC.

I dont want to use (s)mplayer or vlc to watch TV.

How can I fix the problems with kaffeine?

Thanks for any help in advance/gentoo/audio!
Best regards,
mcc

Failed to connect to lvmetad

Hello,

So I do not use 'lvm' on this system. So after adding net-misc/openntpd
and setting it up per the wiki, I  got this strange message::

#  /etc/init.d/ntpd restart
 * Caching service dependencies ...
File descriptor 3 (pipe:[25250801]) leaked on lvm invocation. Parent PID
1159: /bin/sh
  /run/lvm/lvmetad.socket: connect failed: No such file or directory
  WARNING: Failed to connect to lvmetad. Falling back to internal scanning.
   [ ok ]
 * Stopping OpenNTPD ...

   [ ok ]

Now it is gone.... A transient error as the system syncs to the gentoo
time servers?

curiously,

LINGUAS, L10N, and local-gen

Having read the latest news article and rereading parts of the
localization guide, it is not clear to me what action, if any, I need to
take.

My systems are US English only

/etc/portage/make.conf has
   LINGUAS="en"

/etc/local.gen has just comments plus
   en_US ISO-8859-1
   en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8

Should I add
   L10N="en-US"
to /etc/portage/make.conf ?

Should I run local-gen ?

Thanks
allan

inittab changes sysvinit-2.88-r7 to sys-apps/sysvinit-2.88-r9

After update to sys-apps/sysvinit-2.88-r9 the inittab want to change
some parameters:

-l0s:0:wait:/sbin/halt -dhp
+l0s:0:wait:/sbin/halt -dhnp

-l6r:6:wait:/sbin/reboot -dk
+l6r:6:wait:/sbin/reboot -dkn

halt/reboot man:
-n     Don't sync before reboot or halt. Note that the kernel and
storage drivers may still sync.

why changig default to -n so no syncing ?
This seems a bad default .

Any reasons for this change ?
I didn't find any bugs o other doc.

Best regards
Marco
