I changed the time on my Red Hat 6.0 system recently. I know it warns you that doing so may wreak havoc with the filesystem. But I had to do so because it was way off. So I used linuxconf and rebooted immediately after doing so. Now I can't boot normally. The following happens:
I get a message saying,
Welcome to Red Hat Linux
Press 'I' to enter interactive startup
Afew lines later, it checks the root filesystem and then spits out an error message about fsck failing giving its usage message.
I then get the message:
*** An error occured during the filesystem check.
*** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
*** when you leave the shell.
Give root passwd for maintenance.
At the point I enter the root passwd and run fsck. I'm not sure whether I'm passing the correct parameters or whether this timestamp problem can be fixed. I run fsck, then reboot but get the same results. Please help quickly.
