How to fix fsck?

Not sure about some of those symptoms, but as for fsck complaining: edit /etc/fstab and remove the entry for the partition you removed.

After installing Hardy Alpha2, I got 'fsck died with exit status 8' whenever I tried to boot any pre-existing linux partition on my machine. The source of the complaint was in trying to mount the new hardy partition. If this sounds like you, you might try this seemingly pointless yet effective method:

- #ed
this opens a text editor
- alt+sysreq+k
this kills the text editor, and magically sends you on your way to your desktop. wow.

Now you can go into etc/fstab and comment out the reference to the hardy partition. I did, and the partition booted normally upon restart.

Hope this helps.

i used


sudo blkid
to get the right UUID's

and then change them using


sudo nano /etc/fstab
to correct it.

In my case I had an extra UUID that was causing the confusion in my system
