Something in these Olives is extremely sensitive for software faults, but I guess that lacking a shutdown option on screen is just what is needed to overcome these problems.
This morning I booted my Olive2, and had in maestro a few glanzes in the music. I did no updates, nothing really. I shutdowned my pc, and after a while, when the hard disk was silent, I put off the Olive. As I do so many times a week.
This afternoon it would not start any more. It showed the white Olive start-up screen, and kept shining forever. Nothing new to me, I must say
I took out the disk, and yes sdc5 had it usual orphaned stuff, which fsck repaired.
Routinely I fschecked sdc2 and sdc3, no problem. But sdc7 with the music had a problem with it's superblock. Again fsck repaired it. Another fsck on sdc7 showed myriads of problems now! I had to push the enter key to answer Y(es) to all the questions, and after 10000 questions also sdc7 showed no problems anymore.
I tried to boot the Olive with it, but, no change.
Again, I fscked sdc5, and again it had these orphaned stuff.
But again, it did not boot.
However, i am such a seasoned Olive user that I did not despair.
I copied partition 5 from a backup disk, and voilà.
BUT how on earth can this Olive got stuck just by booting up and shutting off????
If I could not repair the disk by myself, I would have bothered my dealer maybe 10 times since I bought it.
Guys, what do you do when you leave your pc? Remove the power cable?
Hey, Olive, what about a proper shutdown option in the menu????
