problems with file system
Posted on 2001-07-05
Hello, I had a problem where my linux froze up (didnt know what to do so i hit the off button). Now when i try to boot up i get a system failure with this message:
Checking root filesystem
/ contains a file system with errors, check forced.
Inode 3162113 has imagic flag set.
/: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY.
(i.e., without -a or -p options)
*** An error occured during the file system check.
*** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
*** when you leave the shell.
Give root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D for normal startup):
control-D just gives me the same thing... and im not exactly sure what im supposed to do with 'fsck' HELP.
