fsck died with exit status 8


Hi.

I'm experiencing a new problem with Ubuntu. I set a dual boot system with windows in hda (first drive) and xubuntu in second drive (hdb).
When I boot ubuntu I got this "fsck died with exit status 8" error, even though I can go to graphical login typing "reboot".

How can I sort this?

My fstab is the following:
Code:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
# /dev/hdb1
UUID=c9e2d3e4-e267-4c3e-b5e8-d09fd011a289 /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0       1
# /dev/hdb5
UUID=300c64ed-b696-4706-b2a8-a5de06bc659f /media/hdb5     ext3    defaults        0       2
# /dev/hdb5
UUID=300c64ed-b696-4706-b2a8-a5de06bc659f none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/hdd        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/dev/fd0        /media/floppy0  auto    rw,user,noauto  0       0
And this is what I find in /var/log/fsck/checkfs
Code:
Log of fsck -C -R -A -a

Have you done a "mkswap" on that - or installed another (dual-boot) distro that picked up that swap partition ???. Looks like the UUID has changed.

Two solutions:
- swapoff and do another mkswap, noting the UUID and paste that into fstab
- modify fstab to use /dev/hdb5 in lieu of the UUID.

The fsck error you received indicates there is an error in your /etc/fstab file. In the /etc/fstab you posted, these lines:
Quote:
UUID=300c64ed-b696-4706-b2a8-a5de06bc659f /media/hdb5 ext3 defaults 0 2
# /dev/hdb5
UUID=300c64ed-b696-4706-b2a8-a5de06bc659f none swap sw 0 0
indicate part of the problem. Notice that the same partition is being mounted at /media/hdb5 and then also assigned as swap. Assuming you can boot from a LiveCD or Knoppix, one simple thing you can try is commenting out the first line above:
Quote:
#UUID=300c64ed-b696-4706-b2a8-a5de06bc659f /media/hdb5 ext3 defaults 0 2
# /dev/hdb5
Then try to boot. If that doesn't work, post whatever error message appears and also the output of
Code:
sudo fdisk -l

Thanks for help. I eventually reinstalled and fixed the problem. I think I messed up my partition a bit in previous install process, which was interrupted during drive partition. Thanks anyway.
