Mepis 8.0 on pendrive bites the dust

I already posted about booting to Mepis 8 on my EeePC 901 from a 4 GB pendrive and it worked very well if maybe just a little slower than if it had been on one of the internal SSDs. More here

I had noticed, however, that the ext3 filesystem was causing some problems in that booting occasionally stopped because no journaling system was found. However, running “fsck -y /dev/sdc1″ on the two Mepis partitions on the pendrive always resuscitated the ext3 fs and booting became possible again.
