I sent this to the debian-sparc list ... but thought it might be worth

Subject: fsck for UFS??

hi all

One of the old Sun boxes here (running Solaris 2.6) $@%# itself recently
... though I've managed to get a Debian base system running off one of the
unused partitions and have mounted the Sun's root partition with the
following command:

mount -t ufs -o ufstype=sun /dev/sda1 /temp/sda1

The system mounts ok, though with a couple of errors ... when I list the
contents of "/temp/sda1" I get the following listing:

"VFS-fs error (device 08:01): ufs_readdir: bad entry in directory #2,
sized 512: i node out of bounds - offset=56, inode=8960, reclen=12,
total  8
drwx------   2   root    root   8192  Dec  18  1997  lost+found
?---------   0   root    root      0  Jan   1  1970  usr

I was wondering if anyone knew what could cause this, or if there's a way
to fix the inode errors. I was hoping someone may know the name of an
"fsck" type utility for Solaris partitions??
