I just had a power outage. I immediately unplugged everything. After the
power came back on, when I was trying to reboot my 486DX2, 66Mhz, 32MB ram,
Linux box (with a 30GB HD), it said there were errors on my hda4. I had to
quickly learn about fsck &e2fsck...something I'd never done before.
fsck couldn't fix anything or even complete its check of the partition.
e2fsck seemed to do OK, but it still found a bunch of "uncorrectable
errors"....but it did fix some errors, and now I can boot normally without a
check being forced.
I'm trying to understand the man page for e2fsck. I used: e2fsck -cr
/dev/hda4. Next time I'll want to use a C as well. The way the man page
reads, it almost looks like I should use it like this: e2fsck -cr -C
/dev/hda4. True? Or can I use it like this: e2fsck -crC /dev/hda4. The
man page shows the C option like this [ -C fd ]. What's the fd all about?
fixed disk? hda?
What's the most graceful way to switch runlevels? It wouldn't let me run
e2fsck after a complete boot. I had to reboot &wait for the boot process to
get stuck on the prompt asking for root password for maintenance. I'm
guessing it was then leaving me in runlevel 1. The problem was, I couldn't
get to man pages until I booted normally.
