Time Event
I installed Mandrake 10.0 Community last week and I have two questions...

1. What do you use to view .mpeg and .avi files?

2. Is there a email client better, then Ximian Evolution?
console font...

how does one change the size of their console font?

Deciphering fsck output
So, I've been having problems with my fileserver (running samba), including errors in dmesg indicating a possible problem with DMA, or a possible physical problem with the disk, or a possible clean bill of health with the fault lying in the client =(. To cover all my bases I ran a fsck with read-write bad block checking, and got the following output:

helene:/mnt# e2fsck /dev/hdb6 -ccfC 0
e2fsck 1.27 (8-Mar-2002)
Checking for bad blocks (non-destructive read-write test): done
Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes
Pass 2: Checking directory structure
Pass 3: Checking directory connectivity
Pass 4: Checking reference counts
Pass 5: Checking group summary information

data: ***** FILE SYSTEM WAS MODIFIED *****
data: 28667/4578560 files (0.8% non-contiguous), 8378186/9159050 blocks

My question is, what modified the filesystem?? I don't see any errors in the output! Does -cc automatically imply that something in the filesystem will be changed, for instance maybe the bad block list or something? But even in that case I'd expect output about what was changing and when. Please advise.
