[Bug 1073433] Re: Ext4 corruption associated with shutdown of Ubuntu 12.10


It occurs that the problem did *not* exist after a recent clean install
of 13.10 (64bit Desktop CD) on a friend's notebook. While it still
happens on my desktop PC.


On the notebook we used wireless (b43 out of the box) internet during
installation. Reboot into new system, login, shutdown is clean.

On my desktop I have no wireless card at all. I use wired connection
during installation. Reboot into new system, login, using system,
shutdown is unclean.

I haven't double-checked this though. But it maybe is a hint, that this
problem occurs on machines with no wireless possibilities.

Bug description:
  1. Format and label a target Ext4 partion using Ubuntu 12.04
  2. Install 64bit 12.10 OS using that target without reformatting it
  3. Shut down 
  4. Boot an alternate copy of Ubuntu
  5. Restart selecting the newly installed OS
  6. Login then shutdown
  6. Boot an alternate copy of Ubuntu
  7.Fsck the newly installed OS allowing corrections to be made

  Each time the the newly installed OS is executed and then shutdown,
  even if execution only consists of logging on, a subsequent fsck will

  I used Acronis True Image Home 2013 to create an image of the newly
  installed 64-bit Ubuntu 12.10, so I can recreate the symptoms of Ext4
  filesystem corruption 100% of the time by restoring from the image,
  booting, logging on and shutting down.
