Mandrake 9.1 fsck


I want to run fsck on my linux drive (hda2) so I rebooted linux... then booted up w/ my mandrake cd... it says enter or f1 for more options.... enter brings you to the install.... f1 brings you to a menu where u can do bootloader or what not and then there is an option console..... so i went into consoel and it brought up the Mandrake 9.1 Recovery Console... init i typed 'fsck /dev/hda2 -y' and ummmmm it says Bash: fsck: Not a command ...... was i doing this right or where do i go to fsck and if i was doing it right wtf is wrong?

Try Knoppix or tomsrtbt

It appears that Mandrake in rescue mode does not have fsck available. I can't fathom why fsck would be missing but then I have never used Mandrake.

I suggest that you get hold of your own stand alone rescue system. Try knoppix or tomsrtbt.

I did it all don't worry... What happened was u needed to do whereis fsck but that didnt work either so i had to look in my directories... I found fsck.ext2 and from there you had to run it from the location such as /sbin/fsck.ext2 -fCcp /dev/hda2 and it ran fine... only thing is the errors i hoped to fix... didnt get fixed at all heh
