Here's an update.  i booted from the gentoo live CD and went and mounted the
harddrive and when I go to my home directory (the one the session files for
ardour are in *sigh* the one I wrote three songs in since last backup *sigh
sigh sigh*) and try to change to my user directory or even ls, I get:

ReiserFS: warning: is_leaf: item length seems wrong: *3.5*[3275 337142 0(1)
DIR], item_len 0, item_location 500, free_space(entry_count) 1
ReiserFS: hda3: warning: vs-5150: search_by_key: invalid format found in
block 21228. Fsck?
ReiserFS: hda3: warning: vs-13070: reiserfs_read_locked_inode: i/o failure
occurred trying to find stat data of [3275 150445 0x0 SD]
ls: /mnt/studio/home/aaron: Permission denied

and when I try reiserfsck /dev/hda3 I get:

Partition /dev/hda3 is mounted with write permissions, cannot check it

Am I hosed?  How hosed am I?  It'd be super special nice good not bad
totally gonna pull my hair out not-throw-myself-off-the-golden-gate-bridge
if I could rescue that directory...

I should probably post this on general unix lists - I guess I better join
some ;)

Subject: [ardour-dev] Eek nice hefty crash action...

Hello all - sorry for cross post - wasn't sure who might have an idea...

see what you think of THIS one.  I was working with Ardour beta28, didn't
make any system changes or anything, and I have done this with this version
of Ardour before (yesterday in fact)...

I just exported a region by right clicking and choosing export, and had it
write to 44.1 16 bit format (the session is 48k) and it hung.  I had to use
the reset button to reset.  So it reset, I logged in, tried the same thing
again.  This time Ardour crashed and exited.  So I went to start it up again
and it flat wouldn't.  It didn't do anything.  So I said ok I'll reboot
again.  I did that, and instead of booting, I got this (after a small scroll
of stuff I don't recognize):

    kernel panic fatal exception in interrupt

And after a try or two rebooting with acpi turned off in the bios and such,
now it stops with this (after similar scroll):

    unable to handle kernel paging request

What the $%#?  Everything I've googled so far tells me things about RAM and
IRQ and acpi, which gives me a bad feeling that I've got a hardware problem.
What does anyone think?

The system is gento 2.6.6 kernel...uh...I dunno what else...brain fried...
