Disk Woes [Sep. 24th, 2003|10:31 am]
Last night, parts of my root filesystem went for a walk. Not much went, but it did happen to include tiny slivers of the RPM database, and the keyboard locale info.

Without the RPM lot going missing, it'd be not too hard to bring things back (verify packages, reinstall what's needed). Without it, I'm looking at backup + reinstall

Two annoying things - I hadn't thought to include the rpm database in my periodic backup schedule, just the full backup one, so I can't just restore that, and the fact that with hindsight I can see the signs that things were going awry with the filesystem, but didn't notice to fix the problem in time
