fsck super-block problem detected on qemu usb slackware minimal image setup


I currently work on creating a Linux image from scratch to be ran under qemu. I test different setups for this, one being the Slackware setup packages.

I tried to install Slackware by hand, meaning the a/ ap/ l/ n/ disks on a usb stick made bootable using grub and ran into qemu.

The problem I encounter is that at boot time, the process stops after reporting that has found some superblock error by fsck.

The superblock is OK, I realize that when I mount the partition by hand under /mnt in qemu and then exit (from init script). I mean Linux system loads fine with no problems and I'm getting a login prompt.

I'd like to know how can I pass over this filesystem fsck.

Thanks in advance!

Slackware does stuff in the install thatr mightn't be handled if you just install a,ap,l,& n. Why not install one of the live cds built for the purpose? No problems there.

I'm testing just for learning.

Apparently, the problem was solved by marking the filesystem partition bootable under fdisk and resolving some fsck inode errors on next boot. So, I'll mark this thread SOLVED.

business_kid, thanks for the reply, I am actually using Eric's Slackware live image, I'm now testing for learning. Next try, I guess, would be to create a loopdevice image file and see if I can make it bootable also, I am not sure yet that I can. I use linuxfromscratch website for base learning so I like the ideea of having an image created on the fly and testing it under qemu.
