Question: invalid key length, disk repair fails
invalid key length
volume check failed
error: filesystem verify or repair failed.
this is the boot volume of the macbookpro running os 10.5.6. been running well for months, used everyday all day, then this am the finder and all other apps lock up, no application crash, just all hanging one after another. hard reset gets system back but it recurs in short order.
i ran diskutil from the software restore dvdrom, three times. same results (error text above) each time. only option barring other solutions is to reinstall the system and restore data from a time machine bu.
never seen this before. any ideas?
MacPro DC2.0GHz; C2D PwrBks; Mini; still have that Newton 2000 in the closet..., Mac OS X (10.5.6)
