Question Whenever I run Mandrake/Mandriva, a warning /hda6 exited with signal 11

Hello. Good day. People, I really need your help.

Yes, I've successfully installed Mandrakelinux on my laptop, completely. Now, I have 2 OS in my laptop, Linux and Windows XP.

This is my problem, after I selected Linux from the list of OS, whenever I start my laptop, the verbose mode suddenly appeared and it says that something like /hda6 exited with signal 11. It cannot continue checking the file system, something like that. Then it asks me if I want to repair it, press ENTER for maintenance or CTRL-D for reboot.

Please help me to fix my problem.

Hoping for your reply as soon as possible.

Thank you very much.

Well it seems you shut down the notebook from Mandrake incorrectly.
/dev/hda6 is probably the partition of your hard drive where you installed Linux, (there are no drive letters in linux, that's why you don't have "D:")
WHen it says "press Y to force verification" do it.

but is not "y", it's capital "Y", so you have to do <Shift> <Y>

depending on how many errors it could take a couple of reboots, but don't worry.
Just keep pressing Y untill the startup don't complain anymore.

Good luck!
