GUI parted, Filesytem errors.. Help!!
Yesterday I was trying to partition my HD with GUI parted (I use redhat 8), which I did, I had 18GB on my / partition, and I resize it to 14G, now those 4GB.. I made those 4GB an extended partition, to install Slackware, which I also did... When I try to run Redhat 8, is telling me that the filesysten has an error. Which is the following:
Checking Root filesystem
/: The filesystem size (according to the superblock) is 4869703 blocks The physical size of the device is 3572452 blocks. Either the superblock of the partition table is likely to be corrupt!
/: UNESPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY
(i.e., without -a or -p options)
***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 Contro -D for normal startup):
Ok so then I ran "fsck".. The first time I did it, it gave me many options to fix blocks, So on all of them I choose "yes" to fix them, but the last couple of options couldn't be fix..(by the way the error is in /dev/hda2 which is the / partition)... What do you guys suggest? I would just reinstall Redhat, but I want to find the solution for this problem just in case it happens again, and I also have some files that I don't want to loose... Thanks for any suggestions...
