HELP: Problem with fsck

Post by Matt » Thu, 09 Jun 1994 15:44:03

My apologies in advance if this is a newbie question, but I'm at a loss.
I booted Linux (version 1.1.8) and I received a message during the boot
informing me to run fsck manually on /dev/hda2 (my Linux boot drive).  So,
I logged in as root and ran

% fsck /dev/hda2

The fsck seem to run ok and it corrected a lot of things.  Each time I was
prompted, I responded y.  Now however, when I attempt to boot Linux, I get

Enter runlevel:

message.  I typed s (for single user mode ... I think) and redid a fsck.
That seemed to make things worse.  Now I can't even get it to boot single
user.  It just sits there at the Enter runlevel: prompt.  At this point,
I'm just going to give up and reinstall Linux (I just got it working ...
*sigh*), but I'd like to know what I should do in case it comes up again.
I'd hate to have to reinstall everytime I get things up and going.

Thanx in advance!



1. Help, problem with fsck

We are having problms with SCO 3.2.4. After adding another disk ( 2GB )
to systems containing a 1 GB disk, the boot fsck fails. It ends up with
'BOOT UNIX NO SYNC'. I suspect the problem relates to a scatch device
but as of now its got the better of me.

Any help would be appreciated.
