Re: file system with errors



Thank You. That did the trick. This is the first time in 10 years that I have needed to do this. It worked like a charm. I didn't even need to edit the /etc/fstab file. I had told it to boot with network support and am able to ftp the files to another server before I reformat and setup everything again. I think I will post this on my wall so that I never forget.

If you have the rhel cds then put the first one in, reboot, and at the prompt type:

linux rescue

eventually you will get to a shell where you:

chroot /mnt/sysimage

and then vi /etc/fstab

How can I hash out the line if I can't boot past the error? After several reboots (and after my original email), I was finally able to have it ask me for a password or to hit Control-D to continue. Problem is that once this comes up, my keyboard is locked up and I can't type anything. During the bootup I can pick the kernel and so on.

hash out the line in /etc/fstab that is mounting that partition on /var/spool/mail

then you can log and in and fsck -p it

RedHat 4.x system.
I am trying to boot a linux system that has 4 HD's. 3 of them are on in a raid 5 configuration and the other one is the boot drive with the OS on it. When I boot the system, I get the message
/var/spool/mail contains a file system with errors, check forced.
The file system in question is the raid and is 500GB in size. I let it run for several days at boot up but it never came out of the file system check and the hard drive lights stop blinking after only about an hour, give or take. How can I tell it at boot time to NOT do a file system check like this so that I can get into the system and either run it manually or format the partition again.
Suggestions?
Thanks
Steve
