Yesterday, I did nothing special with the computer... However, this
morning, something special came to me when I booted it up
"/etc/init.d/rcS line 227: /sbin/fsck
fsck failed. Please repair manually ... "more text"... "
Does anyone got any idea what the problem is this and how to get over ?
fsck is to linux what scandisk is to windows. It checks your partitions
for inconsistencies. If fsck fails, it normally means it came across an
error which it prefers to ask for permission to fix.
The "more text" bit should have told you how to run fsck manually to fix
this problem. It'll definitely tell you which partition was at fault, so
you'll need to boot into single user more and run that command.
This generally means there has been some sort of filesystem corruption,
although why and where it happened can be for any number of reasons -
broken kernels, broken hardware, sunspots, etc.
