SElinux // error in file system check // Please Help


Hey guys this is really frustrating because I really need to use my laptop.

I turned SELinux on...
Now when I boot it says:

*** An error occurred during the file system check.
*** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
*** when you leave the shell.
*** Warning -- SELinux is active
*** Disabling security enforcement for system recovery.
*** Run 'setenforce 1' to reenable.

I have tried going in (since it drops you in a shell) and changing permissive back to disabled but everything is read only. I even tried using the cd to go in and do this but no luck. I've put setenforce 0 to the end of grub and that doesn't help. I also tried fixfiles relabel using the install disk's rescue mode and that didn't help.

I really need to use my laptop. I'm at work ><.
Can any shed some light on how to fix this?

Thanks,

Nomb

If I'm reading the error message correctly, this means you need to run fsck on your filesystems. (This doesn't appear to be a selinux error.)

When it drops you to the shell, run:
Code:
# fsck -A
and let it do its thing.

If it warns you about a mounted/writable filesystem, then unmount it and try again. (i.e. Do not force it to run on a mounted/rw filesystem.)
