Unhappy Root filesystem corrupted.


Root filesystem (/) looks to be corrupted when trying to reboot.
Is there any way I can run fsck on root (/) filesystem.

Hi

Logon as rescue mode & then login & mount the drives accordingly.

Then check the data.

...except you can't run FSCK on a mounted volume.

You have to boot from a CD/DVD/other-media, and boot into rescue mode. If you boot from your hard drive, you won't be able to fsck the "/" partition.
