Unhappy Problem booting Slackware 9..


This is killing me. Power went out here, and now the machine will not boot. It goes to run fsck, and gets to about 70%, and fails. Says something about duplicate or bad blocks, and needs to check more. After failing the second check, it says I will be provided with a login to fix the problem manually, however, I am never provided this login, and the machine reboots.

Any ideas?

I would use some sort of rescue disk and fun fsck from there.

you might want to try a journaling filesystem next time,
or convert your ext2 to ext3. it will save you some fsck
problems.
