    The problem on my system appears to be with the large filesystem performance
    supplement, whether or not it is added before or after the wd driver
    supplement.

    Rolling back both supplements fixes the problem; adding back the wd driver
    supplement doesn't cause any verification problems with fsck or mkfs, and
    fsck runs without error in single user mode.

    Adding the large filesystem performance supplement back after the wd driver
    supplement results in the same problem. It resolves after the lfps is
    removed.

    The wd driver supplement does actually give one verification error, which
    didn't seem to cause problems when the kernel was relinked:

    File: /var/opt/K/SCO/link/1.1.1Hw/etc/conf/pack.d/dk/Driver.o

    Error: Wrong file type (not automatically fixable)
    Expected : FILE
    Found : SYML


    Is there a problem with the lfps, and is the verification error related to
    the wd driver supplement significant?



    I only added the lfps due to the recommendation in the wd driver readme.html
    file. However, I need the wd driver supplement to upgrade
    BackupEdge/RecoverEdge from 1.02.04 to 2.x to get bootable ide cdrom
    support.

    FWIW, I have one system running 5.0.7 with the lfps. fsck works
    properly and we have not observed any difference in system behaviour
    after installing lfps.

    The problem is apparently related to incorrect entries in the custom
    database, with errors after repair attempted.

    No problems with the wd driver, as can't be corrected by custom
    verify/repair, but does trash the lfps as noted when "repaired".

    I have reinstalled the lfps today, no problems thus far, and just won't use
    the custom verify/correct utility for now.

    Updated version is to be released soon.

    As David says -- this is a problem in the packaging of LFPS. An updated
    version is in the works. The problem does not manifest unless you go
    into `custom` and tell it to "Fix Discrepancies". For instance, if you
    did Software -> Verify System -> Normal system state (Quick); it would
    grind for a while, then offer a dialog of "Done / Fix Discrepancies /
    Help". Choosing "Fix Discrepancies" here causes circular symlinks for
    HTFS `mkfs` and `fsck`, and DTFS `mkfs`.

    So long as you do not "Fix Discrepancies" (or its command-line
    equivalent, `custom -v quick -x` or `custom -V -x`), these utilities are
    fine.

    In my opinion it is generally NOT a good idea to tell `custom` to "fix"
    problems it detects. It's not always 100% right about things it sees as
    problems. It's much better to save the report to a file, then manually
    look over the list and make any changes that you think are really
    needed.

    [I should also give a word of explanation about the "strict database
    compliance" option. Don't use it; or at least, absolutely do not tell
    `custom` to "fix" things based on it. This option compares your system,
    with all of its modified files, to the checksums of a freshly installed
    and completely unmodified system. It checks the checksums of files that
    are _supposed_ to be modified in normal system operation; files that
    `custom` knows are intended to be modified. Telling it to "fix" those
    changes would rewind your system to a fresh state, actually "fresher
    than fresh" since many of those files are modified automatically during
    a normal installation.]

    Anyway. An updated version of LFPS will be released; I don't know when.
    It will have no changes to the software, only the packaging. It will be
    installable on top of the current first-release LFPS; doing so will make
    it once again "safe" to "Fix Discrepancies" -- though again, I do not
    consider that wise, even without the specific LFPS packaging problem.
