One question, did you compile alsa drivers in?
The only reference to filesystem corruption with 2.6 I could find turned
up on the alsa list...

Not too sure if its fixed for 1.0.1 + 2.6.0/2.6.1

( I hope so, thats what I'm running, just copy
alsa-driver-x.x.x/alsa-kernel/include into
the kernel source at linux-2.6.1/include/sound and the remainder
under alsa-kenel (bar Documentation) into linux-2.6.1/sound )

I'll have a bit more of a burrow through google, see if it only
affects ext3 (I'm running either ext2 or reiserfs on my partitions)

HTH, if anyone else has any concrete info would love to hear from

 Best Regards
