Hi! I'm a newbie. After using my Redhat 7.2 with KDE on it..something happened, a program got hanged up. Keyboards don't respond and even the mouse. So what I did was to push the reset button on my PC. After that, it displayed something like this:
Checking root filesystem
/contains a file system with errors, check forced.
Inode 573953 has imagic flag set.
/:UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY: RUN fsck MANUALLY.
(i.e., without -a or -p options)
*** An error occurred during the file system check.
*** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
*** when you leave the shell.
Give root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D for normal startup):
I have a book here on Linux Unleashed and I searched on the "fsck" command but don't have examples on how to troubleshoot the file system especially if not properly shut down.
Secondly, which is best? Push the reset button or press Ctrl+Alt+Del?
Waiting for your favorable answers on my problems. Thanks.
