Rrrrrr..ext2 hates me. Maybe over a month ago I installed Gentoo 1.4, cool shit and all but I went with ext2 rather than xfs since I couldn't find it in the kernel config. A few days ago I was trying to install mozzy 1.2 from source..or was it 1.1 either way it wouldn't compile and use up all my hard disk space. I rm -rf the mozzy dir and my hard drive starts making sounds like it's going to fall apart. So by hand, dir by dir I removed the mozzy directory. Today I had to reboot cause for the life of me I couldn't mount my zip drive (stupid dev kernel) and when I tried to boot back to linux fsck got stuck it couldn't do anything to the drive but it still sounded like it was going to fall apart.
This weekend I'm going to have to re-reinstall Gentoo but this time back on xfs, it treated me very well. Stupid ext2 for hating me.
