solaris 8 on intel boot problems
Posted on 2001-06-14
I have solaris 8 for intel installed.
One day it crashed after it rebooted automaticly. When I reboot it from hard disk, I got the following error message after loading dhcp and network adapter:
... mount /dev/dsk/c0d0s6 no such device
(My /usr file system installed on /dev/dsk/c0d0s6, and / file system on /dev/dsk/c0d0s0)
WARNING: /usr/sbin/fsck not found, most likely mount of /usr failed or /usr file system is badly damaged.
(sure, it cannot find fsck)
boot with -b option in an attempt to recover.
But I got the same error when I choose "b" option at the stage of "select (b)oot or (i)nterpreter".
I happened to boot it from the Device Configuration Assistant Boot Diskette (floppy disk). I also choose the "b" option, this time the system started successfully without any error. The boot from hard disk never succeeded after many attempts.
I want to use fsck to recover the /usr system. But I could not run fsck when /usr mounted.
But I could run fsck when I entered command line console. fsck reported that "/" and "/usr" "File system state in superblock is wrong. FIX?" I fixed it a couple of times until it did not give any such reports. However, I still could not boot it from hard disk. Same problems happened again.
What 's the problem? Could anyone help me? Thanks.
