Using debian 6 with i386 sony vaio, laptop slows to a crawl, then I reboot... Then
LIt will startup, then when it gets to the point where its showing the various things that's its doing to start up debian it says something like,
found file system with errors, check forced
Then it will do what I believe is called an automatic file system check, then it stops and gives me a few option. Well, the only way to start up my laptop completely at that point I found is to sign in to root and do a manual file system check. So I type into the prompt
Then it appears to scan what I can only assume is the hard drive. While its doing that it will always stop and say
"error reading block 8093923 attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read) while getting next inode from scan. Ignore error <y>?"
Anytime I enter "n" the whole thing stops and I have to start over, so I always enter "y".
Right after that it says
"force rewrite <y>?"
And I always put "y" because it makes me start over.
Then after that, it goes through several passes and whenever it asks me if it should fix something I always say yes
Oh and this happens every time my laptop slows to a crawl and I try to restart the laptop. Why does it do that, and how would I go about a permanent fix?
Sporty about being vague, I hope I didn't give you wrong info, this stuff is pretty alien to me.
Btw, im posting from my phone,i don't have access to the internet from my laptop
