Running FSCK in single-user mode
Posted on 2006-04-04
I have a FC3 system that is giving me disk errors. I'm new to linux and I know I need to run FSCK. I tried to do this by SSH'ing in, but then got the error that if I don't run FSCK in single-user mode I could corrupt the disk and/or files. So my question is, how do I start the system in runlevel1 ~ i.e. single-user mode.
I know that currently I'm using runlevel 5 (with the gui) how do I switch to single-user mode so I can run FSCK and repair any errors that there may be.
Thanks in advance!
