fsck root

how do i check if a root ( / ) filesystem has corruptions? It is reiserfs. I tried using "reiserfsck /dev/hda2" in "single user mode" but it says its mounted.....DUH! How do i check a filesystem if the filesystem needs to be mounted in order to access the "fsck" program???

Can this even be done???

Re: fsck root

This brings up the question, why are you testing the file system? Is there a failure at startup? If so, you should set the file system entry in /etc/fstab so the check isn't done as ReiserFS takes care of this under normal circumstances. ie, set the 'pass' value (last number entry) to zero.

Re: fsck root

I used Reiserfs for quite a while before switching to the ext3. I like the fact that I can stil access the ext3 without special filesystem support. Ext3 is still the ext2 just with a journal, very much like Reiserfs.
