all changes to file system gone after reboot

Wed Sep 26, 2018 9:24 am

Hi all,

I don't know exactly when it started, but after trying to install the LAMP packages a subsequent reboot causes the rollback of the filesystem to before all the changes.
Just tested it and it happens again. Also new files / folders are gone after a reboot.
I don't know what tools / logs to post here; I hope someone can help out with that.
Seems to me like something with the file table?

SDCard = sandisk extreme III 2 Gb, class 6
running Arch, started from archlinux-hf-2012-09-18.img
Code: Select all

You have to assume that your SDCard is either dead or a fake.

Buy a factory fresh branded SDCard and start building your system again. You can't trust anything on your dead SDCard if it's a fake.
