cant boot, filesystem error

hi.

I am using ext3. During last boot the root partition was checked and it gave me an error:

/dev/hdb5 Inode 144226 has imagic flag set

I have the options to repair the filesystem manually or reboot.
If i choose to reboot, I cant boot. I have a message saying that filesystem has errors and chech forced. So I see again the previous message about Inode.

Any ideas?
How to repair the filesystem?
didnt find something...

Boot from your install CD. In the console do

fsck.ext3 /dev/hdb5

A bus station is where a bus stops.
A train station is where a train stops.
On my desk I have a workstation.

Re: cant boot, filesystem error

you can also choose repair manually. To do so you need to type root password, press enter and then run:

fsck.ext3 /dev/hdb5

or, if you don't want to be pressing [y] key, run:

fsck.ext3 -y /dev/hdb5

Re: cant boot, filesystem error

thanks, everything OK now.

When I boot from boot cd (0.7.2) I cant use fsck.ext3 (command not found) so I did fsck.ext3 during normal boot (later I saw Pajaros post for -y, very helpful)
