UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY.

Postby jhouse59 on Fri Jun 13, 2008 10:06 pm

For a while now when I boot into Mint. I get this message. Above this it says about checking the other drives on my computer. I think this is the one having the problems.
This is the message:

/dev/hdf8:
Inode 224161 has imagic flag set.

/dev/hdf8: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY.
(i.e., without -a or -p options)
fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'UUID=39e6f331=55b6=4dce-972f-6e7827020f82'
fsck died with exit status 12
...fail!
* File system check failed.
A log is being saved in /var/log/fsck/checkfs if that location is writable.
Please repait the file system manually.
* A maintenancce shell will now be started.
CONTOL-D will terminate this shell and resume system boot.
Give root password for maintenance
(or type Contol_D to continue):


Can someone tell me how to fix this.
I'm dual booting WinXP and Daryna. Thanks in advance.


This is from the checkfs file:

This is the key to your problem
Unable to resolve 'UUID=39e6f331-55b6-4dce-972f-6e7827020f82'

Somehow you've ended up in UUID hell

I went to the link. Under the : What can you do about it? It gave an example:
An entry in fstab looks like this (everything behind # is a comment):
# /dev/sda6
UUID=242a97c5-916c-4c76-b403-a390ef292e39 /home ext3 defaults 0 2

Ever line in my fstab looks like the one above. Do I need to change ever line to look like the one below?
As you see the /dev/sdax number is put above the active entry. So you change it like this:
# /dev/sda6
#UUID=242a97c5-916c-4c76-b403-a390ef292e39
/dev/sda6 /home ext3 defaults 0 2


Thanks for answering Husse. I just want to make sure on this before I change anything then regret it.

You really only have to change the line with the failing UUID but I'd do it for all the lines
It is not that hard to do after all

Husse, I couldn't get it to work for me. I done what you told me. It still didn't fix it. I'm just going to install Elyssa. I was going to wait on it. But, I think that I'll just go ahead and get it installed. Thanks for the help.
