Re: all files moved to lost+found

Hello guys,

Just an update.

I was lead to believe that a problem with the UUID in the file:

$ cat /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume    

caused the error.

For some reason, this UUID was not reflecting the real UUID of the swap file.

I was about to mark this as "solved" by that. But for my surprise, look at this events (reported as an image here in imagebin, sorry about that):


After gcc fatal error saying the file (that is open in another terminal, with vim, which I just compiled a few lines above successfully,) didn't exist, I went to the other terminal, typed ":w" in vim, so to save it again, and back to the compile terminal it found the file.

How come!?? It is amazing. This machine is doomed, or the system, not sure. Something is really wrong here. I can lose files just like that!?

Thanks for any input.


PS. Maybe I should start a new installation from scratch, or maybe just to be sure, start using the dual boot I've installed as Devuan, which I'm still not fully using. It is just there, just in case. I don't know. Maybe it is a KDE thing, because I tried to TEST all hardware (disk and memory). 

PS. Ok, I was fast in screenshot, afraid to lose the error. But now that I wrote this email easily, here it is, the same info in the image above, as text. No need to see the image anyway.

In that event, I'd be checking the drive makers web site for firmware
updates for YOUR drive(s)

Seagate is pretty good about that.

I'm not saying this is your problem, but it is something to investigate.

The last 1T drive I updated had already used up 25 sectors as
re-allocated at < 5,000 spinning hours. After the update it was about
25% faster, and 80,000+ spinning hours later, still had that same 25
re-allocated sectors. Its a good drive yet but amanda needed more space,
so it got replaced with a 2T drive. Stretch isn't stable yet,way too
many networking problems so I'll probably wait till buster turns stable.
Networking already Just Works from the reports I read here.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
