Vista Recovery Windows 7 GRUB Extended -->Fedora 12 (ext4)
so, I shrunk my recovery in Windows 7 successfully, and booted into my Fedora 12 live cd to run Gparted, and move the partitions so that the free space could go towards fedora, I did such, and then I couldn't expand the partition to my dismay. Next, I woke up this morning, tried to boot to fedora to run SSH, grub loaded, but when I tried to boot fedora, I got the "File system check failed" error, and when I tried 7, it just went to a blank screen with a single "_" in the top left-hand corner.
I've been stupid, and used kleansweep, which deleted a load of files and in the process killed everything. When I boot I get "file system check failed". Then it gives me a command prompt. I really don't want to have to reinstall ubuntu as I have a lot of stuff installed on it.
I have a Hp Netbook, and my friend installed Ubuntu to my computer. Everything was going fine, until one day my battery died while I was searching the web. I turned it back on and It started checking files and then it took me to a black screen with white letters saying "File System check failed".
I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed on my HP desktop, but I'm running an older version (8.10) on a live CD so I can at least get online to ask for some When I tried to log on earlier it went to a command prompt and said the 'file system check failed' and to run fsck manually. I entered 'sudo fsck' at the prompt and I selected "y" to fix all the bad inodes, when it was complete it told me to restart, I then entered 'sudo restart' at the prompt and it said 'sudo uuid unknown'. I have not installed anything recently and I'm not sure what to do.
just start Ubuntu 9.04 said: File system chek failed a long is beging saved /var/long/fsck/checkfs if that location is writable Please repair the file systmen manually A maintenance shell will now be started Ctr+ D terminate this shell and resume system boot. Give root password for maintenance or type Control +D to continue. I did Ctr+D , and after login said , that can not find /home. I starte with the live cd:
On my laptop I have a dual boot system, CentOS 5.4 on one partition and Windows Vista on the other. In Windows, I have a program installed that allows me to access my linux partition so I have access to the files. Every time I boot into linux after accessing the linux partition through windows, I get a forced file system check. I was wondering if there is a way to disable or perhaps bypass this check?
I have recently noticed that my HDD fsck during boot up (generally done after 30 mounts) is always skipped. A file system check has never happened. I don't remember if this is the case ever since I upgraded to Lucid or was it after I tweaked some settings.I am a learner who keeps tweaking some minor settings, so I am not sure if I have screwed up something.At boot I get the following message:
Code: fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2 fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2
A non techie friend has helped an even less techie friend by contacting me by email to discuss an ailing laptop. A few emails were exchanged, with more details, and it was not looking good because it seemed that suddenly the CD drive was not responding, nor any USB devices, the wireless icon was gone, but Ubuntu still seemed to work (for now), with wired ethernet also working. I was struggling to think of what could be done, with the favourite routes of Live CD and Live USB apparently gone.
After a few more hours - another email: 'It's now working! After so many reboots it checked disc for errors and repaired itself! Is there some way of doing that when needed anyway?'I see there is 'Disk Utility', and this would presumably fit the bill, but how does it do checks and repair when the damaged file system is being run, and is currently *mounted*? I thought utilities like fsck(?) could only be run on unmounted file systems? Have I misunderstood the disk utility fs check repair function? And anyway, what might be a good answer to my (nontechie) friend's question 'After so many reboots it checked disc for errors and repaired itself! Is there some way of doing that when needed anyway?'
For the record: (quote) It is a toshiba EA60-155 Model number PSA67E-00300C8J. He put in extra ram to install ubuntu. He thinks he may have deleted something! There is a 'trash' file on his USB drive with loads of stuff in it and he doesn't know how or why but because it won't now read the drive on her laptop we cant replace it! (end quote)
i have problem during boot my F11 , the problem is :
checking file systems /dev/sda7 : superblock last time ( etc... ) /dev/sda7: Unexpected inconsistency ;run fsck manually (i.e,without -a or -p option) ***an error occured during the file system check ***dropping you to shell:
Dual booting Mint 8 and Windows 7. Windows is reporting a file system error. I go into properties and check for errors, but since it's in use it asks me to reboot. I do, and grub comes up. I select windows and it just takes me to windows without checking the file system.
The server comes up after rebooting and after setting the hostname it starts setting up logical volume management. It says that 2 logical volume(s) in volume group "VolGroupOO" now active But then it starts to check the file system and errors with fsck.ext3: Device or resource busy while trying to open /dev/sdb1 [failed]
***An error occured during the file system check ***Droppping you to a shell, the system will reboot when you leave the shell Give root password for maintenace
After I log in with the root I get the message mesg: error tty device is not owned by group 'tty' Can the forum tell me how to troubleshoot this issue so I can boot back up again? I have 2 harddrives in this server and only 1 drive was detected when I first installed CentOS. The error first appeared when I mounted the 2nd drive at the mount point /UserGeneratedData. drive was formatted with ext3 before mounting and did not have any data on it I don't want any software RAID if thats what seems to be going on with "VolGroup00"
A few days ago I upgraded my debian sid system, and since then systemd does a filesystem check on every boot which takes over two minutes, disobeying the existing settings I had. How can I set systemd to do a filesystem check only once every a set number of mounts, like I had set up before the upgrade?
I installed Ubuntu a few days ago and its been working fine untill I got home today and It wont boot. It comes up with the boot manager to select what OS I want to load but when I select ubuntu it says "Mount of filesystem failed." ,"A maintenance shell will now be started". Then it just goes to command line with "root@user:"Any ideas why It won't boot properly? It also says control-d will terminate this shell and try again, but to no avail it just returns the same error.
I have one hard disk for my root partition and a disk array on a separate mount point. I rebuilt my disk array, but I didn't delete my original mount points beforehand because I was hoping it would just "pick up". So now when I boot up, the OS tells me that the filesytem check fails because it can't find the array to map to the mount point. I know that I need to edit my /etc/fstab and remove the line that defines my mount point on the disk array. But it appears to be read only filesystem when I am in repair mode. I can't force the write with vi.

The configuration default in Gnome power manager has changed and now I can't access anything but, the log in menu. I made a post about it but, no reply. Now I ask anyone if there is a way I can retrieve my files or fix the power manager config files.I tried to reinstal ubunto but, it only alow me to installed on another partition and booth on either one. I don't think that will work. I tried to use ubunto on a stick but, it does not accept me signing in with the same password (too short). I would apreciate any suggestions to get my files back. Compiuter is a laptop HP MINI 210-1054TU software ubunto 10.4 latest
I've created a new group and a new user called dftp... Now I wanna do one thing... If 'dftp' connects thru ftp he should be directed to a particular location... and he shouldn't be able to see other folder except for his own including the parent folder that contains that location... I changed dftp's home folder to the location I want. However while connecting thru ftp. user dftp has been given permissions to see other folders and check out the contents of the other folders.
Started slackpkg upgrade-up and went to bed. Woke up to find the power had gone out during the night. The computer booted up, but displayed a message that said something to the effect of, "Error occurred during root file system check. You will be given the option of doing maintenance......"I can get to a command prompt, but regardless of what I do a message pops saying it can't find libblkid.so.1
i am trying to install symantec endpoint on a linux server by this command rpm -ivh sav-1.0.3-8.i386.rpm but it gives me the following error error: unpacking of archive failed on file /opt/Symantec/bin/navdefutil;4ceb8d6b: cpio: mkdir failed - No such file or directory
I have a Dell Mini 9 netbook. The SSD took a dump, so I ordered a Super Talent 16gb replacement. I put it in yesterday, tried to install 10.10 and constantly get errors. The first error, which I haven't had since, was [ERROR 30] Read-only File System. The install obviously failed. Wondering if perhaps the file got messed up in translation, I redownloaded 10.10, reformatted the flash drive (sandisk cruizer 4gb), put 10.10 back on via the program on the Ubuntu site. No luck, but no longer the [error 30]. Tried again using Unetbootin, no luck. Rinse repeat a few times, no errors just a working cursor spinning and spinning and spinning and spinning and.. you get it.
Tried to put WinXP on it just because I was that frustrated, no luck.
Now I'm back to Ubuntu (because let's face it, who wants to deal with Windows, christ they make it so complicated). I'm currently using 10.04 because I was hoping (praying) it might just be a 10.10 thing.
No such luck, now it goes to step 7/7, starts, and 5% of the way thry "creating ext4 file system" it says "the ext4 file system creation in partition #1 (0,0,0)(sda) failed." I have checked the SSD in the Disk Utility, SMART tests are clean. I have gone to terminal and run fdisk and had a smarter person than me look at the copypasta, no errors, I have deleted all existing partitions in gparted and started fresh. I have tried the auto partitioning, I have tried manual, I am going insane. Literally insane. My preschooler thinks I've leaped off the deep end.
Could it be my flash drive? Could the SSD be defective despite the tests coming back clean? What do I need to type into terminal? Is there a way to entirely entirely entirely wipe the SSD to make it fresh-out-the-box clean? I will happily provide whatever you need if it means I can get my husband off my back about this stupid netbook with its stupid tiny keyboard.
I need a script that dose the following checks if files exists by read input from a file then compares them to the files listed in the directory if they don’t exists the script would report back which file dose not exists. I also need to format the output so that files are grouped in different groups, group A, B, and C and etc based on file name. I would like the output of that do not exists files to be sorted based on second number in the file name than group according. I understand some of the basics of bash scripting something along of the lines of a loop and if statements might do the trick. Below is what I have so far. I don’t car so much about the script reporting back the file exists I prefer to only know if the file is missing and is less than 3 days old. Problem is if a file dose not exists in the reports file the test compares against the wrong file.
