is this ok?
did you use any extensions?
yes, fsck -ext3, however, my filesystem WAS corrupted, and I was at 100% (well, I think 2400 bytes free). Before you try fsck, see if it can be fixed. If you have to, you boot into runlevel 1, single user or 'repair mode', then fsck your disk.
then go to that directory and then
