fsck.ext3 problem (killed)

Post by crazy-flash » Tue Jun 07, 2005 6:53 pm

hey i use gentoox mce for 1 week now, since today my box doesn't boot anymore because of errors on /dev/hda4.
So I booted up xebian and tried fsck.ext3 there, but this just prints out "Killed" and does nothing. I also chrooted to my gentoox environment to try fsck.ext3 from there, i get some more lines on my screen but it also exits with "Killed:"
xebian:/# chroot /mnt/hda3 /bin/bash
xebian:/# env-update; source /etc/profile
xebian / # fsck.ext3 /dev/hda4
efsck 1.3.5 (28.Feb-2004)
/dev/hda4 contains a file system with errors, check forced.
Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes
Killed
xebian / #
is there anything i can do ? the strange is: thing it mounts fine....

Oh, i didn't know about sparkle. This tool worked fine! Now everything seems to be OK.

But can somebody explain me why a normal fsck.ext3 doesn't work? are there any special parameters to put in ?

My only guess is the easy "You sure that partition is ext3?" =)

My guess is you ran out of memory and the kernel killed the process. Try enabling the swap partition with "swapon /dev/hdaX" (where X should be 1... I think).
