Ubuntu 10.10 boot problem


I have critical battery, it's always on 1%. Today the power went down so i tried to shutdown computer. I clicked on Shutdown, it asked me if i am sure and that was it.
But when power was on i tried to turn on computer but get error. It's blanc screen with some text. Here is text at the end:

If me. I would boot up My Ubuntu 10.10 Live CD. Open Gparted (if not installed, install it). Run a check on installed Ubuntu 10.10 Partition. Make sure you installed Ubuntu 10.10 Partition is unmounted before running a check.

check (right click in Gparted) = fsck

I don't run Ubuntu 10.10 though and use Gparted when available.

When I run gparted from Ubuntu 10.10 live cd i get error and i saved it. Here is content of this file:

Code:
GParted 0.6.2

Libparted 2.3

Filesystem mounted or opened exclusively by another program?
e2fsck 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)

========================================
I didn't mounted any partition. I tried to umount /dev/sda2 but it tells me that this partition is not mounted..What to do?

I solved this problem. I found solution for this problem. Look at this link: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ev/+bug/668561

In short i downloaded Slax and ran this command:
Code:
e2fsck -y -f -v /dev/sda2

Gave you a thanks for posting solution. I told you I don't run Ubuntu 10.10 so was not sure it would work for you as live session, but glad Slax worked out for you.

Smile fsck: Device or resource busy while trying to open /dev/sda1

I was a victim of "Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init". I tried using fsck, but it didn't work because of the following problem.*

fsck: Device or resource busy while trying to open /dev/sda1
Filesystem mounted or opened exclusively by another program?

So here is the solution:

boot from live ubuntu cd.

->remove the first inode.

Quote:
sudo debugfs -w /dev/sda1
debugfs 1.41.11 (14-Mar-2010)
debugfs: clri <8>
debugfs: quit
->Restart into live cd again. and do

Quote:
sudo fsck -yv /dev/sda1
It will work this time.*

Cheers

Basing on Biske's reply...
I ran Knoppix from Live USB.
Terminal: sudo gparted
unmount /dev/sda1
Terminal: e2fsck -y -f -v /dev/sda2

Reboot and Ubuntu is back alive...

Thanks to all!
