error during file system check


Hi,
I am getting error while booting the linux operating system.
The superblock could not be read or doesnot describe a correct ext2 filesystems. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystems (and not swap or vfs or something else), than the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock: e2fsck -b 8193 <device>
*An error occured during filesystem check.
**Dropping you to shell;the system will reboot.
***when you leave the shell.
***Warning -- SELINUX is active
***Disabling security enforcement for the system recovery.
***Run 'setenforce 1' to reenable.
give the root password for maintenance.

Please help me out on this! and also is there any command for Forcefully installation of linux during such error occured.

Waiting for your reply.

hi,

I faced almost the same situation like this. And at that point of time i couldn't find any way to get out of this. This is because your HDD has either gone bad or sectors are corrupted. In my case i gave the root password for maintenance. After the maintenance it was all ok, for me.

goodluck.

I had it happen during setup on gentoo. Name of kernel was not right in grub.

Did you make any changes in grub?
If manually changed look at this line
kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.34-gentoo-r1 root=/dev/sda3 init=/bin/bb
It's only an example of where mistake may have been made.

The other mistake I made was I hadn't completed fstab correctly device listings were wrong.

Quote:
/dev/sda1 /boot ext2 defaults,noatime 1 2
/dev/sda2 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/sda3 / ext3 noatime 0 1

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,user 0 0

proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
shm /dev/shm tmpfs nodev,nosuid,noexec 0 0

None taken.
I'm doing the same.
Like I said I got same errors in gentoo & recovered.
It's possible that the op needs more angles for troubleshooting.
