View Full Version : Network Issue
5th November 2010, 04:34 PM
Lately my my internet connection in my house dies, after some troubleshooting I found out that my Fedora box is causing it. I would disconnect the the fedora box NIC to my router and everything is fine, I reboot my Fedora and it works fine for few days and then again my Internet connections dies, I do the same thing again.
I can't figure out what is going on with my Fedora box that is causing this starange issue, I am not sure where to start and what to look for. can anybody direct me to a way to troubleshoot this.

What version of Fedora are you using? Is there anything in the log files (/var/log/messages) on the Fedora machine that looks as if it an error?

I look at the mesages and this is what I saw.
08:46:01 ef1 kernel: sshd:: segfault at 5 ip 08071003 sp bfa830dc error 6 in sshd:[8071000+2000]
I search for this error and it said could be memory issue or hardware issue ot new program. but I am betting it is my memory..
also I noticed this error on my partions.
EXT3-fs warning: mounting fs with errors, running e2fsck is recommended.
EXT3-fs warning: maximal mount count reached, running e2fsck is recommended
I couldn't figure out how to run the e2fsck.
what do you recommend.

With respect to the first error, I would recommend running memtest. It will run for several hours, so it maybe best to do it over night.
The second error points to some issues with your hdd. This may be due to not properly shutting down the machine (and therefore not a big issue) or it may be due to a failling hdd.
You cannot run e2fsck or fsck on a mounted file system. You can, however, run it from a liveCD or the rescue mode of the install dvd.

I ran the e2fsck not from liveCD or rescue disk and saw this.
/dev/sda8: Duplicate or bad block in use!
not sure how to run memtest however.
I got the feeling that my HDD and memory could be failing.

I ran memtest and there was no errors, I ran fsch and it reported duplicate blocks and I guess it fixed them.
so now I wait again and see.
