Re: running fsck on root

I've my drive setup like this:

/dev/hdb1 /boot dos
/dev/hdb2 / xfs
/dev/hdb3 /usr/local xfs
/dev/hdb5 /u01 xfs
/dev/hdb6 swap

I've tried shutting down to single-user mode and then remounting / as ro but all the xfs disk check utilities complain. Are there any tricks to getting the xfs utilities to check mounted filesystems? Or maybe there's a better way to approach this I just haven't thought of?

Have you tried booting from one of the many live distro's out there...

then you should be able to fsck your drive using that.

Thats how i got round my problem with them in use all the time.
