General :: Dell PE1750 Server Not Boot Up After A Power Failure - FS Check With E2fsck

Apr 19, 2010

I have a dell PE1750 server which would not boot up after a power failure. I am thrown to a shell for maintenance after showing an error in file system check. The server was running - Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon). Please let me know if I can try to recover from this error by booting from the 1st CD of a higher version of linux like RHEL5. I ask this because I do not have the old media with which the system was setup. Can the use of latest OS CD cause any problem?

I have 2 harddrives in this server and only 1 drive was detected when I first installed CentOS.

Software :: Rebuilt RAID Array With Old Mount Points Present - File System Check Fails On Boot

Dec 2, 2009

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.

Ubuntu :: E2fsck Fails Device Or Resource Busy

Mar 3, 2011

My son's netbook with 10.10 netbook remix failed to boot. Using the Live install CD and Gparted I couldn't repair the EXT4 filesytem. The error reported was:

e2fsck : Device or resource busy while trying to open ...

After trying many solutions and web searching I decided to try a different live CD and tried Knoppix 6.4.4

Using the command interface I typed e2fsck -v -f -y /dev/xxxx (xxxx = your device). This worked first time and the machine rebooted without hesitation.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Update Error Message About File Permissions And To Check Connection?

May 3, 2011

I had to register with a new username, because I could not remember my logon details and have since changed ISP so could not get details sent, anyway that aside to the problem.

I upgraded to 11.04 and all went well (hence posting here and not in the Upgrade section) and it is running fine, well until yesterday.

I ran the update manager as I usually do when first entering Ubuntu and it did an update but then gave me an error message about file permissions and to check my connection (which was connected OK).It has also affected the Software Installer, and now I can not install any new software.

Is this a generic problem with the latest update or is it just my Dell Inspiron 1545 please?

Ubuntu Installation :: Error Message At Step 5: No Root File System

Jun 6, 2010

I am getting an error message at step 5 of 8 in the installation process. I am using Ubuntu LiveCD. The caption of the error is 'No root file system' and the message itself says 'No root file system is defined.Please correct this from the partitioning menu.' I enclose a screenshot of this. I had also problems with booting Ubuntu and Windows after installing Ubuntu to an external hard disk so I probably have to also create a new boot menu (may be it is differently called, 'grub' possibly, I am not really sure).

I have a Rad Hat 7.0 old Linux system that crashed due to power failure. On reboot the system goes to Checking Root File System and does 92.5% check and fails.

Here are the error messages I get.

I don't know what to do at this point so I say yes and it goes in some wierd mode.

SO I ran fsck manually but I get an error PARALLEIZING FSCK.

I can't fix the corrupted stuff for the system to reboot. THIS IS VITAL.

Slackware :: Pausing During Boot To Check Sda4?

Jan 16, 2011

While booting Slackware 13.1 it stops to check sda4 It says something about discrepancies. This started today after leaving the system up overnight. The system was suspended and wouldn't respond. I ended up have to do a hard reboot. The system seems to be working fine, but it does this every time I start Linux. The sda4 partition is Windows XP. XP also is working fine. While Linux is checking sda4 there is a statement that I need to run fsck without options. When I ran fsck I got the following message.

root@b-bhome:~# fsck
fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2
e2fsck 1.41.11 (14-Mar-2010)

Software :: Using Flash Drive As Root FS At Boot Time Fails

Nov 29, 2008

I have a flash drive that I want to mount as my root filesystem at boot time. When I'm in linux, I can run `mount /dev/sda1 /mnt`, and the kernel will mount the ext3 FS on the flash drive at /mnt with no problems. From this I assumed I could boot my system with the kernel option 'root=/dev/sda1', but this doesn't work. My kernel has no initrd, and is booted directly by a bootloader. It has no modules, so I know that's not the issue.

The current setup that works consists of a ramdisk that the bootloader loads into RAM before booting the kernel. The kernel detects this ramdisk and the current kernel root option ('root=/dev/ram') mounts the ramdisk as the root fs with no problems.I can see where the kernel detects the flash driveat startup, and I can't think of a reason why I couldn't just mount it as root. I can copy/paste startup logs here if necessary.

General :: Moved File Partitions - File System Check Failed On Fedora, Windows Will Not Boot

Dec 16, 2009

my partitioning layout was as follows

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 recently did a fresh install of current and once I had it up and running I compiled a fresh 2.6.33 kernel using my old config file, but now I get this warning durning boot, specifically during module loading WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/sound, it will be ignored in a future release. This doesn't seem to be causing any problems but I am curious to know what the message meams? I checked /etc/modprobe but everything looks normal.

Debian Installation :: Sqeeze / Wheezy Boot Fails Waiting For Root Device

Jun 20, 2011

I've installed squeeze and wheezy on an old Toshiba Satellite 210 CS laptop with 48MB RAM and a 20GB IDE harddrive.Grub2 won't boot at all and stops with a "error: cannot allocate real mode pages". The solution to that is to use the grub-legacy package.The boot then fails with "waiting for root device" and drops to an initramfs shell.

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot Fails: Can't Find Root Device + Drop To Shell

Dec 27, 2010

From one day to the other my system stopped booting properly. Since I (finally) fixed it, I wanted to share my solution. It runs on a fakeraid pair of SSD's of 60 GB each (actually a single Revodrive device, but it shows up as two devices). When Ubuntu 10.10 boots, I'm dropped to a shell.During boot, when I removed "silent splash" from the kernel's command line, I got these messages:

Code:

[ 4.960240] scsi 6:0:0:0: Direct-Access ATA OCZ-REVODRIVE 1.20 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5
[ 4.960425] sd 6:0:0:0: [sdg] 117231408 512-byte logical blocks: (60.0 GB/55.8 GiB)

[cod]....

I doubt that this is what was needed (as I had that already when it didn't work, but I might be required in addition to installing dmraid)

# update-initramfs -a

After installing this, the problem was solved!! This is strange since I don't recall uninstalling this package or changing anything important, for that matter (perhaps did apt-get upgrade, but that's about it!). [URL]

General :: Installing Ubuntu From A Flashdrive Alongside - Ngside Windows - Error Message - No Root File System Is Defined

I can use Ubuntu from my flash drive, but I want to install it in a partition alongside windows. When I try to do this, I come to an 'allocate drive space' window, but whatever I do I get the error message: 'No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu.' I just don't know what this means, or what to do next. I'm loathe to ditch windows, and I don't want to have to use a flashdrive all the time.

We have tried loads of combinations of settings in the BIOS and fibre channel BIOS without any success or any idea what may have caused the error.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade RH9 To F10 - Install Fails - Installer Fails Media Check Due To "errors"

I am trying to upgrade RH9 to F10. I have downloaded dvd iso image i386. The SHA1 integrity check passes. The installer fails media check due to "errors".
