filesystem check fails during boot
I "upgraded" my kernel to 2.4.20 using the rpm from a red-hat mirror.
In order to satisfy dependencies I had to install filesystem 2.1.0 and upgrade modutils, mkinitrd, e2fsprogs, initscripts, dev and iptables.
now when I boot, after it says press I for onteractive start u, it checks the root filesystem ok, then module dependencies, then fails on /dev/hda8 (which is my /home partition), with the message fs.ext2??? (i cant remember exactly) failed returning error 11.
It drops me into shell called "repair filesystem", from where I can mount the partion and read it ok, "file -s /dev/hda8" tells me that it is a ext3 filesystem and "stat /dev/hda8 " returns more info about it, but gives no clues about how to repair it
How do I repair this?
