1 Hi,
2 I am using Reiser on a couple of my partitions. When booting it informs
3 me the 'dma is turned off, this is slowing down fs checking. Also,
4 occasionall I am instructed to ctrl D for a reboot. Is this normal for
5 reiser? And, how do I turn dma on? A similar situation occurred with
6 all ext3 filesystems then afte about 1 yr the root partition developed
7 significant errors and wouldn't boot. So I put reiser on it. What do
8 you think's up? It appears to me to be a broken hdd?
9 Gavin.
