Unhappy Boot error fsck.reiserfs failed Run Manually


I have a Compaq 1850R with three 9.1 GB HDD Partion into 2.
One System Partion the other a Virtual Partion with the other two drives.
Verson of Linux I installed: Suse 9.0.
The system was running well until I restarted, thats when I get the error mesg.

fsck.reiserfs /dev/sda2 failed (status 0x4). Run Manually.

fsck for root files system (/) failed.
Please repair it manually and reboot.
The root file system is currently mounted read-only.

Then it ask for the root password.
After I enter it a try to run fsck /dev/sda2.

And I get this message.

fsck.reiserfs /dev/sda2 failed (status 0x10).

I hope someone can help.

Thanks

Hi,

I`ve got a similar problem, only my partition is on an external usb-device but also called /dev/sda2.

So far I`ve tried to mount my system with Knoppix 3.3 and to fsck-check the root partition, /dev/hda5 in my case. Here I see that the filessystem is corrupted. In my case `fsck.reiserfs --rebuild-sb /dev/hda5` aborts, but you could try and see if this solves your problem.

I would also be thankful for any other suggestion!

greets,

Vickerl

Boot error fsck.reiserfs failed Run Manually

someone said comment(#) the error partition on /etc/fdisk but what if the partition is your root partition

note these things if you have a problem

a. login as how login gives you access to your system
b. #mount -n -o remount,rw /
c. #e2fsck -p /dev/hda3 (here hda3 my root )
d. if it does not work
e. #fsck /dev/hda6 (respond +ve for all the questions i.e. default answer)
f. Neglect any last message and just reboot
g. Now it should work in case of hard disk
h. If you have any problem with flash drive it is wise to comment out (#) in /etc/fstab with first executing (b.) as above

Thanks

hi,
I've got the same problem and when I followed the steps above, after step c. the display below was shown;

(none):~ # e2fsck -p /dev/sda2
/dev/sda2 is mounted.

WARNING!!! Running e2fsck on a mounted filesystem may cause SEVERE filesystem damage.

Do you really want to continue (y/n)?



Is this a normal display? Is it safe to continue?
Many Thanks.
