Thanks, all clear.
>> Maybe there was an operation in progress on the passwd files when the system hung ?True. Kdm (Xorg) start was in progress, i did see Xorg blank screen but not kde login one and then freezed. I'm still trying to find the reason, but i assume this is somehow because of keyboard layout. I switched to standart layout and switch to local one after kdm completes its job.

Could NetBSD friends share their experiences once a NetBSD 4.X system completely freezes and is restarted by only clicking on power button? Well, the system rebooted and fcsk started. Then i noticed that master.passwd didn't exist anymore and passwd is empty. I set root pass in single user mode and checked some of config files and restored from backup. I couldn't find any lost+found either. No crash file.Maybe there was an operation in progress on the passwd files when the system hung ?My questions are - Whether data-loss is normal after fsck completes its job with no lost+found entries.No, but you can have trucated or corrupted files if they got written shortly before the crash. I think a file that was being created when the crash occurs can be deleted entirely. This is why I suggest a passwd operation when the freeze occured.- Whether data-loss is probable on ie; /home partition although it is rw mounted but untouched before freeze.No.
