File System check failed, but my OSes work.


Everytime I boot Ubuntu, after the loading screen (the screen with the black background, Ubuntu logo, and loading progress bar), a shell comes out telling me that the filesystem check failed and will tell me...
Code:
 A log is being saved in var/log/fsck/checkfs if that location is writable.
Please repair the filesystem manually.
A maintenance shell will now be started.
bash: no job to control in this shell
bash: groups: command not found
bash: iespipe: command not found
bash: The: command not found
The program apt-get is not currently installed. You can do this by typing apt-get install apt
bash: apt-get: command not found
bash: dircolorsi: command not found
bash: The: command not found
The program apt-get is not currently installed. You can do this by typing apt-get install apt
bash: apt-get: command not found
What happened was, I just installed DreamLinux on a partition and it shared the home partition with my Ubuntu install (Don't worry. I used different user names for the two Operating Systems). After that, some weird file system check always come out of Ubuntu but not whenever I boot my DreamLinux install.

How do I fix my filesystem?

I had this problem with a fresh install of ubuntu the other day. You can fix it by running 'fsck /dev/hda1' (or whatever your system looks like), and do this for all hard drives listed in /etc/fstab. Do this at the emergency shell that it drops you to. I had a 250gb hd that was not correctly partitioned and failed on boot with this error until I removed it from fstab. I then ran fsck against it where it told me that the partition was corrupt. After re-partitioning and creating the file system, i added back to fstab. It rebooted fine after that.

Hope this helps

Thanks for your tip. I'll do follow it if it happens to me again.

I just reformatted my laptop because I thought it was impossible for me to fix it.
