Thank you for subject help. I usually submit a bug report. What was consistent with my actions was that I kept deleting all of the unimportant snapshots in snapper each evening. Except my earliest single snapshot. Interesting this happened after two weeks of deleting snapshots.
Could this be the cause? Maybe, maybe not.
Yes, but as you're not sure I would not blame btrfs even if other filesystems work. I would check the hardware, in particular the memory and the CPU.
If you have a syslog daemon running check if there are any traces of a kernel ooops. Maybe you're able to catch a kernel ooops.
Check the CPU fan in particular for dust. I had been surprised how much collected inside of my workstation when I had to replace a disk recently.
Can this function be added to the script to https://openqa.opensuse.org/ ?
How? Please make a more precise suggestion how to improve openqa in this regard.
I followed an example of creating it from the snapper website. I should have created a pre and post snapshot to restore. Yes.
The problem is that I've reinstalled using ext4. I was upset that I could no longer work with the kernel source. And, the snapshot was read-only when booting into it.
snapshot are always read only. That's a feature and not a bug. ;)
I will reinstall with btrfs. During the installation, I always remove the grub2-efi subvolume. My Asus P5Q motherboard uses a standard BIOS.
I've been using the ext2 filesystem since 2000 with Mandrake 7. Then Mandrake Linux 8 - 9.2 with ext3. Then switched to openSUSE 10 using ext4 and reiser3 filesystems. I really liked reiser3 - and it was fast.
IMHO As a user, I never had to worry about the filesystem except the odd fsck until btrfs. That's a fact. Nor should any user. However, I enjoy a challenge. I'll keep on testing and testing.
Next time, I'll submit a bug report as soon as it happens.
There's a lot of the new information to cram into this old brain of mine `:-)
It keeps you moving! I hope your health insurance will pay a bit back to the project. ;)
