Devuan jfs boot warnings and errors

Hello everybody,

I installed Devuan on 'jfs' partition
As a result I get lots of warnings and errors which are not there on Devuan on 'ext4' partition
And on every boot there is a significance delay due to the system's necessity to automatically perform 'jfs.fsck' after the first 5 or 6 warnings
Is this the case (i.e. to be expected) when using 'jfs'?

Re: Devuan jfs boot warnings and errors

No. I'm using JFS on all my partitions/disks and it boots pretty quickly. Having said that, I had some issues with one drive (with a JFS partition) but that turned out to be a hardware failure. Fortunately I already had anticipated said failure coming so I had saved my data to a different drive and after a last sync between them the failed drive is now out of my desktop.

In any case, I don't see the JFS warnings/issues you mentioned in your posted dmesg abstract.
For starters, post the contents of the /etc/fstab file. I'm also interested in your CPU make/model and installed RAM capacity.

Re: Devuan jfs boot warnings and errors

I had used 'jfs' on this laptop in the past with 'Slackware' so there is no reason to doubt the CPU or the RAM capacity
But if you have some information that connects the CPU or the RAM capacity with 'jfs' I would like to read it if don't mind sharing the link to it

# cat /etc/fstab
UUID=1190ddee-8f83-40a9-8688-0eaeb317d634	/	jfs	defaults,noatime	0	1
/swapfile	none	swap	sw	0	0

Re: Devuan jfs boot warnings and errors

CPU and RAM are not particularly connected to JFS, but being a journaling file system the required checks take time if you have low RAM and/or a low capacity CPU. Make sure you have the jfsutils package installed, but given you can boot eventually I think it already is.
