|Hi guys, I'm having a hellva a problem. I'm attmpting to FSCK on a corupted/crippled system, but nothing is seeming to stick/work properly. I'm talking on that system now. How can I get fsck to run on bootup? I tried sudo touch /forcefsck but doesn't work. When I try single user mode, advanced options system ins mounted and when I umount it say busy.
|Jym, are you sure the problem is just fsck and not bad sectors/disk?
|The easiest way to check would be from a live cd/usb
|You'd run both fsck and dmesg from there
|alkisg: Yes, the laptop battery died, and bad shutdowns
|Jym: if you don't have a live cd, press e in grub, put break=mount, and run fsck /dev/sda1 from there
|alkisg: So, hold SHIFT, get into grub menu, press e, break=mount, then reboot and run fsck?
|I'm going to give it a try, brb..
|alkisg: I booted from livecd, when I try fdisk /dev/sda5 it keeps say the is no mbr and to create a dos label
