It's been a nightmare after upgrading to 1.6Q.
I believe the recent code change to FFS is causing these issues to pop
up. I'm seeing file corruptions. When a library gets corrupted, things
I saw these corruptions (was reported to the list) when I tried to make
install world. I manually got pass that phase.
This morning my system hung with "init: getty repeating too quickly on
port /dev/console, sleeping" was in part due to one of the library file
So the system locked up, I couldn't get to a shell or login.
Manually rebooted the system, it goes to the fsck phase and reported a
lot of these errors:
UNALLOCATED I=99429 OWNER=root MODE=0
SIZE=0 MTIME=DEC 31 18:00 1969
If I don't remove them by answering 'y' then the system will not boot
pass the fsck phase on the next reboot. If I do remove them, some of
those libraries are needed for basic system functions and it can't
start some basic services and the system won't fully boot.
