Last upgrade 3 weeks ago broke aptosid,
ext4 broke down, fsck could not fix it, nor could pmagic,lots of drdy's etc on attempting to boot. Had to go to Europe, so it waited 'till got home.
Nothing wrong with the drive, so gave up and lost some stuff and reformatted.
Guess I'll wait 'till next release too many warnings at present.

So what exactly was the issue? This is a subforum for warning other users about upgraded packages that don't work as they should. Posting about an unspecified package you upgraded 3 weeks ago isn't exactly helpful for a distro where users often upgrade on a weekly or even daily basis...

Let me explain further for what it is worth
I had to go to Europe suddenly, due to a close relative's death, and was away for 3 weeks,
Aptosid too was dead when I returned and booted up presumably after the upgrade 3 weeks before it was still going then when I closed it down, so beats me, but to me Sid ext4 format seems a liability. I blame the upgrade playing havoc with the filesystem, This may be no issue I guess to some but it was to me.
I am writing this in Kubuntu 11.10, itself based on unstable, and residing in the same partition that destroyed itself as aptosid after many previous rolling upgrades dual booting with MS. MS still survives too.

This is an unspecified report of problems with unknown reasons, there are no known problems with ext4 related upgrades at all. Moved to "Software".
Greetings,
Chris

Linux ATA wiki may help with troubleshooting.
