My ubuntu stops when mounting system hdd. The screen display the following messages :
mountall:/etc/fstab: No such file or directory fsck from util-linux-ng 2.16 WARNING: couldn't open /etc/fstab: No such file or directory init: mountall main process (545) terminated with status 1 General error mounting filesystems.

I suspect the disk manager pysdm that i had just installed today and it had crash during the previous session. The /etc/fstab file does not exist anymore and i cant rename the fstab.bak because the disk is read-only even for my root user
When I boot the linux kernel 2.6 , I was kicked out and request to run fsck manually. After running fsck -y /dev/vg00/lvol3 and /dev/vg00/lvol4 and reboot, I still get the same error and request me to run fsck . I attach the console output in here .
Today for strange reason, one of my Ubuntu 64 bit server Linux VM failed to start ? it stopped in the FSCK scan status with the error as attached. few days back I've added new hard disk successfully and format it as sdb5 without problem.
I was running 11.0 and it stalled in the middle of a number of updates. On reboot I now get (if I remember correctly) Error 15: File not found.I managed to get my hands on a 11.0 live cd and started trying to fix grub. However, when I try mounting the harddrive using "mount /dev/sda1" I got
Code: can`t find sda1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt" gives
We have a server for which the root password had been lost, and there were no other user accounts set up. Yesterday evening I attempted to reset the root password by booting from the install CD and using VI to clear the root password in the passwd and shadow files. I then rebooted, and the system has halted with an 'FSCK failed. Please repair manually and reboot' error, with a prompt to 'Enter root password' below. But of course the root password isn't known (I had expected it to blank after editing the passwd and shadow files, but it doesn't work), so I have no way of logging on.
I have a problem partitioning an Hard Disk Drive on a server, and I hope someone can help me with this. Here is the system configuration: Operating System Linux localhost.localdomain 184.108.40.206-64.fc11.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Sep 25 04:43:32 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Hardware: RAID bus controller: Hewlett-Packard Company Smart Array G6 controllers (rev 01)
The system mounts one hard disk (120 Gb) with the OS, and four 1.5Tb Hard Disks mounted on RAID 10 for a total of ~3 Tb I need to create several partitions on this RAID drive, but I have some trouble doing it. I need a total of 10 partitions of different sizes:
Using GNOME2.X (default) and Fluxbox on ZorinOS4(upgraded from ubuntu10.10 to 11.04) When I boot up everything goes fine right up until the splash screen. Once I get to that, Screen goes black for 3 seconds or so, Then the command line pops up, Asks me for LOGIN: and PASSWORD:, and after I enter that it starts fsck then says something like:
/dev/sda5 mounted - sda5 mounted 22 times without check, Forcing check-- sda5 CLEAN Xnumberofblocks/Ynumberof blocks...
Error: cannot start Xserver
If needed I can reboot my machine and write the whole thing out and post it back. sda5 shows it is filesystem, ext4, 25g ,mounted at /,Partition type Linux(0x83), partition flags: - SO after it does a force check it brings me back to hevithan:$ ... I tried typing fluxbox to run that instead of GNOME and it says Error: failed to launch. Xserver is running.. So I reboot, and select: ubuntu-linux version(recovery mode). Look at the startup log it says what I already got in command: Failed to boot XServer is already running. So I select Restart X and it works fine after that.
Things I have downloaded/installed recently:
*Used additional drivers to enable propitiatory drivers.
*Simdock (Which I didn't like) so...
*A comic book reader (I forget the name but it was in the repos) and a few upgrades to software/programs I already had.
Why is X trying to start 2 times? Why is it forcing FSCK every time? Could anything I have downloaded changed my GRUB or Kernel info and confused the system?
I have SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 running on HP Mini 2133. It's been working like a dream since I got it, but one day I got the following error message when booting it: Failed to start the X server (your graphical interface). It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the X server output to diagnose problem? <Yes> <No>.
X server output says alot of things, but I think this is the most important: (==)Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" ACPI: OSPMOpen Called ACPI: Opening device (EE) VIA(0): No valid modes found
I then get the login:. I'm able to login, but I have no clue on what to do. How can I fix this?
I'm a linux noob, only know about enough to be dangerous...I am trying to get my Fedora Core firewall to work - I actually didn't know it wasn't until I started poking around in the GUI (I use both CLI and GUI) - so I used the CLI to try and start it and got the following:
[root@linuxbox ~]# service iptables start Flushing firewall rules: [ OK ] Setting chains to policy ACCEPT: filter [ OK ]
loading /usr/bin/teclafsck failed. please repair manually and reboot. the root file system is currently mounted read-only. to remount it read-write do:bash# mount -n -0 remount,rw /attention: only control-d will reboot the system in this maintence mode shutdown or reboot will not work.
I have a server that said a volume was dirty and to check it at reboot, so someone did a shutdown -rF now. Only problem is the other volumes are HUGE and it will take forever, which I cant have happen. The volume with the trouble is non-critical so I could take it offline and check it that way if i can get this to boot quickly. How can I do that if its going to auto check every volume on reboot now?
I installed Red-hat 5.3. Problem is that it is not showing graphical interface. Only kernel / command prompt is available. I tried startx, then I got this msg. No video BIOS modes for chosen depth. Also showing that: ERROR: Failed to start X server.
I have centos 5.3 installed, while restarting httpd service I get error starting http:/bin/bash line 1 9941 segmentation fault /usr/sbin/httpd. If I stop httpd service and start it will start but if make service httpd restart it give above error.
Today I did an update on my Debian 6.0.0 installation, which included a kernel update. I also did an Nvidia driver update, afterward. All well, until upon a third boot up an fsck check was forced (34 mounts). Some odd behavior ensued. At about 19% it exited the check, printed what appeared to be a load of inode numbers with error messages, and "froze" with the caps lock and num lock lights on the keyboard flashing.I did a couple of grub recovery modes, each which advanced a little further, and all is well again. However, it concerned me. Where in var/log do I find the file of that particular fsck activity?
RHEL 5.4. I'm facing the following error after rebooting the server: /dev/VolGroup01/u04: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY Run fsck Manually" *** An error occurred during the file system check. *** Dropping you to a shell: the system wil reboot *** when you leave the shell. give the root password for maintenance:
-Previously I performed a lvreduce command on a LV, after the lvreduce, I reboot the server. -After login as root I run: e2fsck -f /dev/VolGroup01/u04
But, it shows: The filesystem size (according to the superblock) is 5218304 blocks The physical size of the device is 1310720 blocks ... either the superblock or the partition table is likely to be corrupt abort<y>? no pass 1: cheking inodes, blocks, and sizes error reading block 1310722 (invalid argument) while doing inode scan inore error <y>? y
-Additionally, trying to lvdisplay, it shows: Locking type -1 initialization failed I have no important data on that LV, but I can not boot the server properly.
I want the filesystem of my external drive to be checked periodically after a numer of mounts. I put 2 in the sixth colums of fstab for this partition
Code: /dev/sdb1/mnt/hdext3rw,dev,sync,user,noauto,exec,suid02 and I use the tune2fs to set the maximum mount count to 32. Code: tune2fs -c 32 /dev/sdb
now the mount count is 34 and the date of the last check is not recent, so apparently the auto fsck has not been performed. Probably because this partition is not mounted at start-up but I usually mount it manually.
I wanted to know how can I make fsck automatically fix HDD errors when it needs to check HDD during boot up and do not ask user for it . I found some of fsck related scripts in /etc/init/ and /etc/init.d/ but I don't know what to do with them.
Suddenly my machine not working under run level 5 and it seems to be problem with xserver and it is saying that "in last 90 seconds xserver restarted 6 times and unable to start" and then just giving blank screen.So i changed the run level to 3 and using startx command i am managing to work now.
