OpenSUSE Install :: Repair System Without DVD?


My system got stuffed after a trivial online update, it downloaded a new kernel update, I rebooted and now it won't boot at all saying "FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.31.8-0.1-desktop/modules.dep: No such file or directory", then some stuff, then "mount: unknown filesystem type 'ext4'", "could not mount root filesystem"... It's on my laptop without a DVD drive and I've only got a LiveCD USB stick which doesn't have a YAST system repair tool. Is there any way to repair a system without a DVD drive?

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Repair File System Errors
I cannot now start openSUSE 10.2 properly (it's been working for over a year). Looking at the start-up in verbose mode I see the message:

dev/hd6 contains a file system with errors, check forced.
[hd6 is the partition where / is mounted]
At the end of the checking I get:

fsck failed. Please repair manually and reboot. The root file system is currently mounted read-only. To remount it read-write do: bash# mount -n -o remount,rw/How do I repair hd6 manually?

OpenSUSE Install :: Clean Install To Repair System?
I was trying to upgrade to 11.2 from 11.1 by upgrading the OS online. However my internet connection failed and the upgrade has now messed up my system. I have a dual-boot system with Windows XP and I'm wondering if it would be OK in getting the DVD and selecting update? Or do I have to change the boot log etc?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 : DVD Menu Missing Repair Tools For The Installed System
It used to be that the dvd menu offered an option to "repair the installed system". THis was really very convenient. The openSUSE 11.3 dvd for x86 now only gives a "system rescue" option which leads to command line directl. Where have been "the repair the installed system" tools? How can we access them now? What is a reasonable set of tips that's supposed to be used after logging into "system rescue"?

OpenSUSE Install :: Booting/Installation Error (noob?) System Repair #?
Im probally just being a noob here but for the projects sake I thought it would be good to identify this problem. I have an old advent laptop and I tried to install Opensuse from DVD on it. I followed the installation as normal but when I tried to boot it said some sort of check was forced and then I have to enter the admin/root password upon doing this I got the message system repair # in red. I have tried to repair the system through the installation DVD and tried re-installing it but I still get the same message.

OpenSUSE Install :: Option "Repair System" Does Not Exist In 11.3
Turns out I downloaded the openSUSE 11.3 DVD Full and well, I see that in the boot options, I do not see the option "Repair System", only:

"Install"
"Booting from Hard Disk"
"Verify installation media"
"Firmware Test"
"Test Hardware"

No more, and I see that everyone leaves the option, as in version 11.2, to "System Restore / Repair System" Is there any way to get it? I need to repair GRUB, as I appear, I had it in a logical partition and therefore I have GRUB errors, since the re-installation of windows and then deleting it, I thought of this. Any way to get this option by the Live CD or what? Is it a BUG in version 11.3?

OpenSUSE Install :: Where Is The Repair Facility In The 11.3 DVD
I can't find the repair facility when running the openSUSE 11.3 install DVD. In earlier editions it was on the Installation Mode screen, three options:

New Installation
Update
Other Options

Under Other Options there used to be a repair function. I can't find the repair facility in 11.3. Is it now located somewhere else, or has it been removed?

OpenSUSE Install :: Not Booting And 11.2 Repair Doesn't Recognize Itself?
but I know a fair amount about the OS. I really like openSuSE, and I was trying to install 11.2 on my laptop, completely blank hdd. It installed just fine;I used the default options (the partition scheme was /boot, swap, root, /home) and started thesktop without a hitch. However, when I restarted, my BIOS would not even recognize an OS on the hard drive. I was also unable to boot using the installation DVD. I tried to use the repair feature, and I would either get a message saying that the boot loader was corrupt,d could not be repaired, or that the package database didn't match the version of openSUSE installed. I've tried re-installing multiple times, all with the same results. I have tried different partition schemes and I've tried different booting settings, such as enabling boot from root or /boot partition

OpenSUSE Install :: Repair Bootloader In Opensuse 11.3?
I have made the mistake of installing windows XP on one of my drive after I've upgraded to opensuse 11.3 on my other drive. Now, my computer is always booting to XP and doesn't load Grub anymore... I guess I should have seen it coming I previously had similar problems with my boot loader which I could resolve using the Repair boot loader utility distributed with the installation DVD. Apparently, this utility is not distributed anymore with opensuse 11.3... so I'm a little lost. I'd like a bit of advise before I start messing with Yast / boot loader and potentially break everything.

My system is setup as follows: sda is partitioned into sda1 (swap), sda2 (root / in ext4), sd3 (/home in ext3) and sd4 (/windows/F in NTFS containing virtual machines) sdb is partitioned into sdb1 (my Windows XP install in NTFS) and sdb2 (another storage drive in NTFS).

OpenSUSE Install :: Repair Or Add Repositories After Forcing Kernel Safe Mode
I got the blank screen when trying to install openSUSE 11.3 x64, so I was able to successfully install by choosing: Kernel (F6) > Safe Mode

Now I am trying to build my wireless driver, and I also notice that my touchpad is not scrolling. I had this OS installed in Windows 7 through VirtualBox before doing the clean installation, and I remember the touchpad scrolling.

I am thinking that by choosing Kernel Safe Mode to install openSUSE, that it did not install all the repositories, and it is why I am running into some difficulty.

what I need to do to fix my installation as if I had not installed in Safe Mode.

Ubuntu :: 9.04 How To Repair System Sounds
On startup I heard a 'click' around the time "loading hardware modules" and "loading kernel drivers" was showing on the monitor. Then all the system sounds became fuzzy (corrupted?). Other sounds, such as VLC playing a music station, are fine.

CentOS 5 :: How To Repair File System
I fouled up the file system when removing a drive. How do I fix it, or do I need to re-install?

The system boots to the point in the GUI where it checks the file system. It then suggests that I run fsck without the - a and -p options, and the drops to a sheel.
I enter the root pwd and then it says: "(Repair fileystem ) 1#" What do I do from there?

Ubuntu :: Repair Installation / System Restore?
OK, so about a week ago or so my Ubuntu 10.04 install no longer recognizes my iPod Touch or Iphone. I have had no luck getting them to work. i REALLY do not want to fresh install Ubuntu. Is there a way I can like repair or restore (a la "Window$") that will fix the OS itself without removing any programs or settings?

General :: Use Live CD For Repair But Get Another System Has Been Detected
I want to use the live cd (Linux mint 9) to do a repair install on my system, but when I start, it says that it has detected another instance of linux and this must be removed before I can continue. I don't want to do this as I have a lot of data on this system and I don't want to lose it. The error occurred when I did a dist-upgrade and installed new kernels. Before I installed the kernels, a message came up saying the following packages are already installed but are no longer required. Use apt-get autoremove to remove them. I did this and now when I boot, I get as far as the five changing dots on the screen and it just stays there. I went into command line and ran apt-get mint-meta-main mint-meta-gnome, and at the end it came up with problem with /etc/utilities/desktop.

Ubuntu Installation :: Repair The System Using Live CD
I get this message when I boot

init: udevtrigger main process (440) terminated with status 1
init: udevtrigger post-stop process (449) terminated with status 1
init: udevtrigger main process (447) killed by TERM signal

I'm now on the live cd, is there anyway to either fix that, or just repair the system? I tried booting in safe mode too, none of those started up either.

Ubuntu :: File System Damage Repair Or Reinstall?
I booted up Ubuntu after a couple weeks of downtime. I think it had just installed updates before I shut it down. It seemed fine. I started updating it, then it started giving me a bunch of errors about the root file system being mounted read only, so I had to reboot. I've heard that it does that if the file system is corrupted or there is a hard disk failure. When I rebooted, it kernel panicked on all but the oldest kernel which did a fsck and rebooted. Then I was able to get back in, but most of my panel applets are gone and cannot be restored, it fails to start x at boot with no errors and I have to start it myself from the command line, it is unable to do updates, samba is gone, whenever I update-grub to add Gentoo to the list, it doesn't stay there and the computer is really slow. I have backed up my home folder to another partition. Do you think I will be able to repair it at all or should I just reinstall?

Ubuntu :: Automatic File System Repair On Boot?
I'm using Ubuntu Lucid and any sudden power loss will usually cause problems with the file system. When I bring the computer back up, Ubuntu will then scan for errors at boot-time and if any errors are found it prompts me to select whether to repair or ignore them. I would much rather have it select the repair option automatically so that I don't have to be physically present.The reason for this is that i have a web server that should come back online automatically after a power loss.
