I have a UML that crashed before, and so obviously it needs to fsck the ext3
partitions at boot time.
problem is fsck likes to randomly pause while checking the disk image. The
really weird part is I can get fsck to resume checking by hitting enter.
I know this sounds weird, so its just easier to show than describe.
The following is a copy/paste of what I have to do for fsck to work on my

You'll notice that when fsck decides to pause is pretty random. At first it
works non-stop till ~11%, but then I have to keep hitting enter ever so
often. There is a long period between 67% and 94% where fsck works fine, but
I couldn't capture all the output, but basically fsck terminates just fine,
and the system boots like nothing weird happen.
0) Host is 220.127.116.11 + 2.6.7-skas3-v7
guest is 2.4.28 + 2.4.27-um1
1) I *CAN* reproduce this problem. Just crash the UML again, and have the
disk image automatically be fscked again at start up time.
2) I know that while this crashing and fscking might cause file system errors,
the files/libs that provide and are required by fsck are just fine.
( running "rpm -V $(rpm -qa)" was my proof of this)
any ideas ?
Got a strange problem with the network.
I had the uml working perfect on a box and just replicated it on another to run
the same thing. I changed the ips on the new box, i can ping the ips from
inside the uml. However when i try to resolve any domain it fails. I first
thought my resolv.conf was the culprit, however i checked it up and its
correct. I checked the route and it wasn't setup correctly.
Using redhat-network-config i configured the network with proper gateway (i put
the host ip on it), now when i restart network, i get this:
Bringing up interface eth0: dev_ip_addr - device not assigned an IP address
Any clues ?
I also tried to connect to an ip address from inside the uml to port 80 and it
didn't work. My guess i have my network screwed up somewhere and haven't been
able to fix it till now.
Any help wud be appreciated. If you need more info please let me know.
