This has just happened to me when I booted with a Knoppix Live CD and mounted
/dev/hda1. I didn't dig deeper into the problem, but Knoppix seemed to have
set the system time incorrectly. It looks as though the last mount time is
written to the filesystem superblock, so root was left with the Knoppix wrong
system time. When I booted with Debian, I got the same messages you got. I
didn't run fsck manually. At the next Debian reboot, fsck was automatically
run and then, no more error msgs.
I just used a knoppix disk to do fsck on all my partitions (as I
couldn't get to / to do fsck manually). Then I rebooted into knoppix
again and ran fsck on all partitions and they came up clean. so I reboot
into debian and again get the errors. I know what you're saying that
maybe knoppix is writing incorrectly, but I got this error long before I
thought of sticking knoppix in. And I don't get an automatic fsck on
I think its a e2fsprogs issue. what version are you running?
knoppix is currently 1.38 (30-Jun-2005) and I'm running 1.39-WIP
so with totally clean partitions from Knoppix, I still get errors. Some
of those partitions were never mounted in knoppix either and should not
be generating this error as no new mount time should be written.
