Lately when I boot Puppy I get a message when bootup starts:
"ext2-fs (sdb4): error: ext-lookup: deleted inode referenced 798126"
I get this nine times in quick succession, with different numbers.
The sdb4 partition is formatted ext2, with various frugal installs of Puppy.
Does anyone know what's happening, and how to eliminate the messages?

Sounds like file corruption errors, maybe just be occurring at shutdown, and if it keeps happening, may indicate a flakey hard drive

Try copying your drive contents that you want to keep elsewhere, [DVD/USB HDD?] then reformat the drive, and dead/flakey sectors should get locked out

A quick simple check is to boot with

Code:
Puppy pfix=purge


which does a full filesystem check

http://puppylinux.org/wikka/BootParametersPuppy

or, To check the save file, boot from the CD with puppy pfix=ram and go to the directory where the save file is.
In a console/terminal enter
Code:
e2fsck -v <the name of your save file>.2fs


...as checks cannot be made on a live/mounted savefile

http://oreilly.com/linux/command-directory/cmd.csp?path=e/e2fsck

more rarely -c can be used instead of -v for badblocks checks - as above

HTH

I ran e2fsck on the partition. Many errors to correct, but now no error messages.

Thank you Aitch, this worked perfectly. I started getting the error after I re-partitioned my drive.

Sub_title: Compressed volumes
 

I've got some inode problems on a compressed save file. I tried running puppy in ram only and running e2fsck on the unmounted compressed save file and it lists a series of errors mentioning compression and suggesting I need a newer version of e2fsck. Has anyone had success fixing a compressed volume and if so... How was it done? Thanks in advance for any wisdom on this.
