I just wanted to create a separate home partition on my Ubuntu 12.10 system. I booted the liveDVD, resized the sda2 partition (28gb of data resized to 30gb based on MiB [originally on a 100gb partition]) and made a new ext4 partition for the home folder. The drive is an SSD drive. I had changed the settings (noatime etc.) for SSD succesfully a week ago. On reboot I get the following error:
/dev/sda2 contains a filesystem with errors Inode 74669 has an invalid extent node (blk 6881289) fsd /  terminated with status 4
I was following this HOWTO, but I did not get to changing any of the files or configs other than those with gparted.
I have a (two-week old) SSD Samsung drive which is functioning just fine. Other specs: 64bit 12.10, i7, 8gb ram, nvidia.
When trying to recover the data in my encrypted home folder before a clean install I ran dmesg. The following things I do not understand, do you?
- fb: conflicting fb hw usage inteldrmfb vs EFI VGA – removing generic driver
- ACPI Warning: 0x0000000000000460 – 0x000000000000047f SystemIO conflicts with region VPMIO (20120320/utaddress-251)
- ACPI … rather than the native driver
- lpc_ich Resource conflict(s) found affecting iTCO_wdt
This message I get for about a 100 inodes:
Valid ecryptfs headers not found in file header region or xattr region, inode 99738
Is it a problem that I resized a partition which contains an encrypted folder?
The system was corrupt. It had to do with ecryptfs. See: eCryptfs: Input/output error. I reinstalled.
