Hi,

I'm using Reiser4 for 3 years now with default config (mkfs.reiser4 /dev/sdx). Now I got a new box and of course selected reiser4 as my root-filesystem. But this time I thought maybe it's a nice idea to tweak reiser4. I found that thread and formatted my partition with:
Code:
mkfs.reiser4 -o create=ccreg40,compress=lzo1,compressMode=force,cluster=8K,fibration=lexic_fibre,formatting=smart


Everything worked fine for a few days. But then I wasn't able to boot my computer. I booted the rescue-cd and ran reiser4.fsck. I was overrunned by a vast number of error messages like that:
Code:
obj40_repair.c: 123:obj40_stat_unix_check: NODE (12345), item (12) [1234ab:123] (stat40): wrong bytes(12345), FIXED to (12345)

After rebooting everything worked fine. Then simple I made a:
Code:
emerge --sync && emerge -uDN world

and just for fun a new filesystem-check. The errors reappeared.

The strange thing is: The harddisk works fine (smartmontools no errors), the system didn't crash.

Are those errors normal? Is Reiser4 with plugins a ticking time-bomb?

There were issues with reiser4.fsck on compressed volumes. These were supposed to have been addressed with the latest sys-fs/reiser4progs (version 1.0.7).

I would suggest installing sys-fs/reiser4progs-1.0.7, and see if you still have fsck issues.
