e2fsck reports no problems, but mount warns of errors
MyBook Western Digital external 1 TB drive, mounted via firewire.
Debian "stable" (mostly).
Linux 2.6.15, compiled locally
Mount says "mounting fs with errors, running e2fsck is recommended"
Ran e2fsck (twice; took an hour each time), no errors reported
Mount still says "mounting fs with errors, running e2fsck is recommended"
dumpe2fs says "Filesystem state: clean with errors"
How to clear the "error" bit? Leery of using drive that doesn't mount cleanly. :(
Thanks for any help!
Update: Problem solved.
The first two fsck's I ran, which didn't solve the problem, but nevertheless appeared to run a thorough check, were:
e2fsck -C 0 -p -tt /dev/sdb2
The third fsck cleared the error bit, I think because of the "-f" flag:
e2fsck -F -f -C 0 -v /dev/sdb2
