FC5 couldn't boot due to problems with the filesystems in /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00


Hello everyone!

I turn to you once again for your opinion and advice.

I've been running Fedora Core 5 on my computer ever since it's release and never had any problem with it (huh, well never had any major problem with it) until today. It first started acting funny then simply refused to boot! Let me explain:

I first started my computer and everything was working fine. Then I activated my internet connection (I don't let it activate automatically at boot time) and everything worked normally. But then when I wanted to open firefox, the window was disappearing right away. "Ok" I told myself "must be a minor bug" (Yeah, right).

I rebooted and tryed again. Same result. Then I tried to open a command line terminal. Nothing, the window jammed. I tried to open a couple of other things, nothing was working! So I rebooted a second time and it's where troubles began. First, it didn't shut down correctly (had to do 'reset'), then it wasn't booting anymore!

What was happening at boot time was the following:

Quote:
Setting up Logical Volume Management: 2 logical volume(s) in volume group "VolGroup00" now active
[OK]


Checking filesystems


/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00: UNEXPECTED INCONSSITENCY, RUN fsck MANUALLY
(i.e., without -a or -p options)
[FAILED]


*** 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 to continue):
I did Ctrl-D to reboot a couple of timeds but I was always getting that message at boot time. So then I chose the other option and here's what I did abd what happened (I appologize in advance for the length):

Then nothing else. I had to do 'reset' and then the computer could boot. But I won't try anything else before I've done a backup of everything I have on that computer just in case.

I searched the net for someone with the same problem but didn't find anything like that. However I found some cases that I thought were close enough and in their case, it was part of their hard drive that died.

Could it be that for me too?

What do you think?


Thank you very much for your time.

Hi Iltbreg,

yes, this seems to be a hardware hard disk problem.
Find out what disk drive you have and download
an analysis tool from the website of the manufacturer.
Or use "Ultimate Boot CD ", which already contains
a lot of hard disk tools for analysis and disk
copying. But it might be difficult to copy filesystems
within LVM.

Good luck !

Andreas

Hi Andreas,

So it is what I feared it would be. Oh well. Right now my OS is completely messed up. So messed up that I haven't been able to make a backup of all my stuff on that hard drive. I had to pick the most important files and sacrifice the largest ones. I can't manage to copy or move them elsewhere before the system crashes (really reminds me the good old days with Windows). I'll follow your suggestion and still do some testing on the hardware... If I can.

Thanks!
