Talking fsck question


7.1 crashed and caused the whole system to go down. Now, When re-booting, it goes through it's processes and it halts with a message telling me to either fix the problem by typing in my root password or continue normally by pressing "Control-D." If I press Ctrl-D, The computer re-boots and I am left with the same problem. The PC recommends running "fsck" but it seems as though I'm having to check each and every file. Note: It recommends not to use the -p and -a switches. Even trying fsck -a just did one individual file anyway.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, Don't won't to lose all customizations and installs I've already done to the system.

Any idea why this happened? You want to avoid things like this whenever possible.

In order to fix this you will need to insert a boot disk of some kind and run fsck from there. You can use the installation cd in "rescue mode" for this purpose.

Re: fsck problem

First off, Thanks so much for the reply and help zmedico.

This crash occured while being connected to a corporate network using SSL/VPN/Citrix. Went to open an additional web page and total freeze up and crash using NN.


I have had this happen before in the past and reinstalled RH but this time I was hoping not to have to go that route.

Did you try to kill XFree86 with the three-fingered "cntrl-alt-backspace"?
