Slackware :: The Computer Booted Up, But Displayed A Message That Said Something To The Effect Of, "Error Occurred During Root File System Check?
Mar 3, 2010
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 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:
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).
This is what I have given as bootargs... Kernel is working fine with filesystem if booted from pendrive /dev/sda1..But as I want to make that work from NAND, where already uboot and uImage are located...I used nand_erase and ubiformat to write ubi image on NAND.But after applying this, on uboot
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.
I am running Ubuntu 11. 04 on my 160gb HD, which is making funny noises and could be on its way out. I have in my PC a 500gb HD on which I would like to install 11.04, but, althogh the dis has installed OK on my laptop, and on my 160HD on my desktop, it will not install on my 500gbHD, everytime I try I get the message "no root file system is defined, please correct this from the partitioning menu"

You know the system mail message that Pat leaves root welcoming them to Slackware and other things.here are some good things in there. I wanted to know how I could copy that so other user on the system could read it in a text file or something
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?
I'm trying to install ubuntu 10.10 on xp,but, after waiting around 2 hours per instalation I received a error message that says:" unbuntu installer : and error occurred: coercing to unicode: need string or buffer, none Type found. for more information see log file C:1customerlocals-1 empwubi-10.10-rev197.109. I tried on one particion make just for it then I even tried on xp on C: I even put it on a pendrive but my bios is old and do not provide for usb booting. The other thing I have to try is making a boot cd but for one reason or the other , my recorder do not want to recornized my cds- rw and right now I do not have any regular blank cds . That will be my next step. Note: Ubuntu appears installed on the the control panel "add or removed programs" but not in "all programs" list. I'm a novice on this so maybe the answer was posted but I couldn't find it. Looking ahead to try it and be part of the linux team.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 but while completing installation at the point when we remove installation CD from drive and go to press enter to restart the system, I saw this error:[2993.693601] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 537844 like this line there were so many line displayed the I pressed enter the PC got restarted and now Ubuntu running as nothing happened. But I couldn't understand what was that error and how much serious it was.
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 would like to know if there is a way to do an unattended check on the root file system on my servers, *and* send emails in case of errors.
I know you can schedule a root file system fsck during boot time - but the root file system will be mounted read-only - so if fsck finds any problems - it can't email away a warning, or write the result to a file - or can it?
Essentially I would like my servers to do a self-check of the root file system periodically - and to email me if it fails. I just can't think of a way to get it done.
I need to enlarge the root file system on a Slackware 13.0 32-bit system; it's in a simple logical partition (/dev/sda6) -- no LVM, mirroring etc. This might be a good opportunity to change from ext4 to jfs, too.Routine procedure, no? No!First off I booted Knoppix 5.31 but found it doesn't have ext4 support (no efs2ck and running fsck results in "fsck.ext4: not found").So I booted Slackware 13.0 32-bit CD-1 only to get the same as with Knoppix.I do have a GParted-liveCD 0.3.4-11 but have had mixed experiences with it so am reluctant, despite having backups.
There is a centralized FTP server which are accessed by clients to develop some web development project and to achieve this the clients are using ftp service. The problem is when they are trying to copy any files and directories they are getting the following error: "Message reported from the file system: FTP copy not supported,use move instead" I've checked all the permissions and they are all OK. I don't know why this is happening. they can create and move files and folders but can't copy files and folders.

I have installed vnc-server on my CentOS 5.6 virtual machine. I can connect to it with a java web browser so it seems to be working. However, I get the following error message when I start, stop or restart the vnc-server process. Quote: Starting VNC server: 1:ken xauth: timeout in locking authority file /root/.xauthkk661q
I have installed fedora 13 in my system. httpd server is also installed. when I tried to start the service of httpd, following error message displayed: Starting httpd: (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80
I was trying to install Ubuntu desktop and laptop edition on a Sony Vaio netbook from a USB drive, but after I select the entire disk to be used and hit enter I get this message No root file system is defined. correct this from the partitioning menu. If I try to start windows I just get s black screen.
When I get to installation step "Allocate drive space" I get this message, "No root file system is defined. correct this from the partitioning menu." What is the source of this error and what do I need to do to correct it? I don't see a partition menu other than a choice of using the whole drive or a partition? Below are the choices that I have made. Specify partitions manually (advanced) Allocate drive space Choice are device (/dev/sda4) Type ((ext3) size) Mount Point (no choices offered) Size (42088 mb) used (670 mb) boot looder is sda Windows 7 ext3 42088 MB I am installing Ubuntu 10.1 on a seperate partition. Windows 7 is on another partition. The machine is an ASUS A52F Laptop
i have one partition of 45 Gb...and other of 250 Gb in which windows 7 has been installed..i booted from ubuntu 10.10 CD and then i chose the installation option on desktop...but when i selected the partition of 45GB for installation..the error message said that "there is no root file system on the drive, set it from partition options"..
After a fresh install of Debian I came across an error Im hoping you guys can help me with. Ive searched for the error and it appears there are multiple reasons that could be causing it. To compound the problem, Im at work so I dont have the specific error messages....so I just installed Lenny (standard install, no desktop) using a USB installer and everything went very smooth. On first boot, the system paused while waiting for the root file system. After a minute or two it just errored out complaining it could not find the root file system and put me at a (vmlinuz) prompt?My guess is that I need to go into my bios and change my boot priority.. but again, thats just a guess.
I just installed Fedora 12 and while I was trying to install Skype, there was a system crash and since then I cannot install any other software or cannot even access 'add/remove software'. Whenever I try to install a software or try to open the 'add/remove software' or, 'Software Updates' I get the message 'An internal system error has occured'. and inside it contains this-
Code: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py", line 2956, in __init__ self.repos.confirm_func = self._repo_gpg_confirm File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 717, in <lambda> repos = property(fget=lambda self: self._getRepos(), File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 496, in _getRepos self.conf # touch the config class first .....
I tried these using the terminal- yum clean all yum metadata sudo yum clean all yum clean metadata and all of these gave me the same result-
Code: Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit Config Error: File contains no section headers. file: file://///etc/yum.repos.d/skype.repo, line: 1 "su -c 'yum -y install skype' " Everything else is working fine, but I just can not install or update any more software.
