I am running RH 7.1. The power went out at my house and my Linux system
went down the hard way. When I started the system back up after the power
came back on I got the following error msg.:
Checking Root filesystem
/ contains a file system with errors, check forced
UNATTACHED inode 24577
/: unexpected inconsistency; RUN fsck manually.
(i.e., without -a or -p options)
*** An error occurred during the file system check.
*** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
*** when you leave the shell.
Give ROOT password for maintenance
(or type Control-D for normal startup):
After I type in the ROOT password I get a command prompt saying "filesystem
#1". When I type "fsck" the command prompt changes to "filesystem #2". I
repeated this all the way to "filesystem #250". That's where I stopped. As
far as I know, it would have gone on forever!
When I run the "shutdown -h now" command and restart my system I get the
same problem. Anyone know how I can get my system back up and running?
Thanks for any and all help.
