26 If you use XFS, make sure you have good power. XFS does not like power
27 failures at all. I have had to reinstall on a second rig because of
28 this very problem. If you have a UPS, that may be OK.
30 I have used Reiserfs since I started using Linux four years ago and I
31 have not had any trouble at all. I would make sure it is not something
32 bad on the drive. I'm even looking forward to Reiserfs4 myself.
34 Also, exactly what is the failure you have? Have you googled to see if
35 others have the same issue and maybe a fix?
