Looks this is caused by Journal entries being corrupted if the Activity is open when the power switch is pressed

see also #11142 which may relate

still present in os40

Does it also occur with 11.2.0 on XO-1.5, which uses the same underlying filesystem?

Does it occur if you type sync in Terminal before forcing the power off?

Tested XO-1.5 0.92.4 OS2

no problem on either a 2 button press orderly shutdown or single long press panic shutdown

OS40 only has panic shutdown, corrupts journal with or without sync command

Thanks.

On XO-1.5 powerd responds to the power button down event by calling sync, so the test is not useful for comparison. Sorry about that. Please either pull the power sources, or stop powerd.

On os40, powerd is not running. That is a contributing cause to your symptom.

This problem #11160 will be reduced in severity once powerd is running properly, though corruption on battery drop should still occur the same on XO-1.5 and XO-1.75 assuming the same Fedora upstream and similar kernels.

pulling both the charger and battery on the XO-1.5 does not corrupt the journal

best to wait for powerd to be fixed I guess

You might test with http://dev.laptop.org/~pgf/public_rpms/f14-arm/olpc-powerd-35-1.fc14.armv5tel.rpm or wait until it hits a repository and becomes accessible to yum. If installing manually, you'll first need to yum install -y --nogpgcheck ethtool, then rpm -U olpc-powerd-35-1.fc14.armv5tel.rpm.
