HELP: Newbie needs help with crash
My computer just seized up (cursor frose; ctrl-alt bksp and ctrl-alt del
did nothing). I then warm rebooted. After the usual, I got:
Checking root file system
/dev/hda2 contains a file system with errors, check forced
/dev/hda2: unattached inode 28780
/dev/hda2: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY
FSCK FAIL. lease repair manually and reboot.
Please note that the root file system is currently mounted read only. To
remount it write
#mount -n -o remount,rw /
I remounted as requested and got
EXT2-fs warning: mounting unchecked fs, running e2fsck is recommended.
EXT2-fs error (device 03:02): ext2_check_blocks_bitmap: wrong free blocks
count in super block, Stored = 3170112, counted = 3170136
EXT2-fs error (device 03:02): ext2_check_inodes_bitmap: wrong free inodes
count in super block, Stored = 977529, counted = 977522
I then tried #fsck and got
Parallelizing fsck version 1.10.
#fsck -r gave same thing.
Then tried #e2fsck /dev/hda2 as advised above and got
/dev/hda2 is mounted. Do you want to continue (y/n).
I cautiously responded n. I also tried #rdev -R/vmlinuz 1 which Sobell's
book says should
force Linux to boot with root file system mounted readonly, and got
1: no such file or directory.
I am now at a standstill. Any help on what to do next would be much
