Re: ReiserFS on RedHat 8.0 - "dead inode read from disk", but disks are fine...



Hello,

Kernel version is as follows...

  [rhobbs stg-it2 rhobbs]$ uname -r
  2.4.20-28.8smp
  [rhobbs stg-it2 rhobbs]$

Is this *definitely* nothing to worry about at all then? What causes it
to happen?

I know you said it was possibly caused by a file being deleted with
"unlink(2)", but how would i know if this is happening?

Thanks again,
Richard.
