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?
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"
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 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
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".
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.
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.
There are some user-space based NFS clients (e.g. NFS Client library). Can I bypass file permissions by using such client? code...
Client1 uses usual NFS client (kernel-mode based) and user1@client1 can read only file1, but not file2. As I understand, client1 sends uid in nfs request, server1 do a permissions check based on the request data. So, I suggest this is possible to have a client2:
Client2 uses user-space client, and hacker@client2 knows uids of user1 and user2; If he wants to read file1 he can send uid of user1; if he wants to read file2, he sends uid of user2.
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.
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
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:
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?
I have a dual boot system (CentOS and Windows XP Pro). The computer has 2 disks with the operating systems on sda. My data files are on the 2nd disk (sdb I think). I would like to be able to access the data files on sdb from CentOS. I tried issuing the Linux command:mount -oro -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /mnt/winbut CentOS tells me that ntfs is not a file system it recognizes. Even if I leave out the -t ntfs I get the same message. Any ideas on how I can get access to the Windows files while in the CentOS boot?. I got the idea for the above mount command from the book: Fedora 10 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Bible byCristopher Negus.
I have a problem that is probably simple, but have not yet found the answer on any forums or by Googling. First my system specs:Tyan 2610 motherboard w/ 2 x PIII 9334 gig PC133 SDRAM 1 x 5 gig hd (system)4 x 500 gig hds w/ 3Ware 7500 controller set to RAID 5, (1.5 TB) mounted as /homeCentOS 5.3 running my smb and nfs mountsMy problem is that I have run out of space on my / (root) file system, (the 5 gig). Since I am planing to rebuild my file server with larger hard drives, (2 x's 60 gig SATA's set to RAID 1, 6 x's 1.5 TB at RAID 5), within the next 2 months, I would like to try to clean out any unneeded crap rather than adding a hard drive and expanding my root file system. I have done the following:
Removed old unused kernels cleaned up /var/log/ cleaned up /tmp
I am new to Linux and not sure how to explain what I want to do, but I will give it a try. I have a system running CentOS 5.x on a system the is dying. Is there an easy way to migrate the system over to a brand new system that I recently purchased? I only have / and swap partitions, so nothing fancy; however, I have read that Linux is nothing like Windows when it comes to applications, and I could simply drag and drop files on the new server; however, I suspect that there is more involved than that. I hope I can just move the files over, and the system will boot; however, I am worried about new hardware on the new system. I am looking for recommendations to this issue. I am not sure if I have described it correctly; however, just point anything out that I need to change.
When I run 'parted' and then type 'print' to see the partitions that are available, I see two entries: /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2. /dev/sda1 is of ext3 type whereas for /dev/sda2 nothing is specified for file system type. The LVM flags are set for /dev/sda2.
When I tried to resize /dev/sda2, it gives me the error "File system type not recognized". let me know how to find out the file system type of the partition.
my android phone doesn't seem to be recognized by the system and it's file system is vfat how did it occur while i've been using my phone as a storage device it still works yesterday but upon plugging it in the usb port it says "cannot mount volume".....
