FSCK and ReiserFS on SuSE - is it me or are there lots of posts on this?


I'm running SUSE 9.0 - I wanted to check for online updates etc. - and found I couldn't get the server list - and for whatever reason decided to bring the system down and did so with no incident or crash out etc.

When I reboot - I get an error
on FSCK.REISERFS - Run Manually etc.

...and have had no luck getting around this.

I have a brand new 120 gb drive and since the system has been up has been stable.

I've checked around on www.namsys.com and located the following thread

http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=reis...8680718274&w=2

this lead me to look at the FAQ on there site - and namesys's mail archive and Linuxquestions.org - It seems to me that there is a really big problem here with reiserfs.

What I would like to know is how to turn of FSCK from running at all when I boot up.

OR

If someone has a magic bullet on exactly what manul command line I need to run to get around the problem.

It seems to me that if I re-install from scratch that whatever the issue is with the namesys reiserfs product will return eventually.

My problem closely resembles this previous post closest in its description:

I have a Compaq 1850R with three 9.1 GB HDD Partion into 2.
One System Partion the other a Virtual Partion with the other two drives.
Verson of Linux I installed: Suse 9.0.
The system was running well until I restarted, thats when I get the error mesg.

fsck.reiserfs /dev/sda2 failed (status 0x4). Run Manually.

fsck for root files system (/) failed.
Please repair it manually and reboot.
The root file system is currently mounted read-only.

Then it ask for the root password.
After I enter it a try to run fsck /dev/sda2.

And I get this message.

fsck.reiserfs /dev/sda2 failed (status 0x10).

I hope someone can help.

Thanks

To turn off fsck at boot edit /etc/fstab and change the 1 1 at the end of the line to 0 0 like so /dev/hda12 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
becomes
/dev/hda12 / reiserfs defaults 0 0

...and if I leave it that way? I gather what it's suppose to run for a reason so I'd like to fix the problem.

I'm not really clear on what I did to end up with these issues.

I'm no expert but here's what worked for me:

my problem was on /dev/hda6 mounted on /home

as root:

unmount the offending file system:
umount /home

fix it:
reiserfsck --fix-fixable /dev/hda6

reboot:
shutdown -r now

if you can't umount the root file system because it is root
you might try using the distribution cd/dvd and using the
rescue (single user) mode

good luck,

-- Pete
