i had a power failure last night and this morning my home partition refused to mount (or rather mounted read-only)
I ran fsck but it keeps saying things like couldn't read, short read.
It then gives me the option to ignore the error and rewrite.
What does this mean? What is it actually doing?
Is this a HD problem, or a journal problem?
Basically i have no idea what's going on.
Some more info, this is the full error message:
Error reading block 20971520 (Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read) while reading inode and block bitmaps. Ignore error<y>?
