Re: ext3 trouble

I have no complains regarding how linux implements support for
different features. I have some idea how hard it is even if  you have
all documentation (because documentations contain erros, I know it from my own experience). When you do not have documentation --- it is much much harder.

What bothers me is that everything was working fine until recent upgrade.
For some reason superblock last write time is always in the future, which
causes errors. How to fix this is a question I would like answered.

I subscribe to three email echoes about Linux, and I see a
recurrent theme: mysterious errors, solved by booting with
ACPI turned off.

ISTM that either: Linux just doesn't properly support ACPI, or
BIOS implementors just don't know how to get it right.

Either way (and I don't care which) perhaps the default boot
should be with ACPI turned off, and add an option to turn it

I had several mysterious problems with my machine until I
put "acpi=off" into my grub.conf.

Stock Windows XP has no problems with the ACPI on my machine.

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
