The event, log, and statistic daemons do not start anymore. Furthermore, when trying to move or delete files generated by these deamons in the directory /phion0 following error message gets displayed: 


Cannot remove file: read-only filesystem



Check the dmsg entries with the command dmesg first:


Messages like the ones below indicate that the journal file is corrupt.


journal_bmap: journal block not found at offset 6156 on ide0(3,5)
Aborting journal on device ide0(3,5).
ext3_abort called.
EXT3-fs abort (device ide0(3,5)): ext3_journal_start: Detected aborted journal
Remounting filesystem read-only

Delete the corrupt journal file and create a new one. Follow the instruction below to create a new file. Enter following commands on the command line:


    phionctrl shutdown
    killall syslogd
    killall pre_syslogd
    killall metronom
    killall ntpd
    killall crond
    umount /dev/hda5
    e2fsck -y /dev/hda5
    tune2fs -O ^has_journal /dev/hda5
    tune2fs -j /dev/hda5



In this example we use device "hda5". On other installations, the device could be another one.
