Regarding booting problems

Post by Henrynmt » Sun Aug 19, 2018 11:44 am

I have been using linux mint for almost 7 months now and there have been ups and downs. I have now come across a problem which I can`t get rid of.

When I try to boot, it leads me to q wcreen where I have to type in the commands manually with something called initramfs.

I tried help for a list of built in commands and when I commanded exit it says:
... Fsck from util-linux 2.27.1 .........
Contains a file system with errors, check forced.
Inodes that were part of a corrupted orphan linked list found.
dev/sda1: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY. (i.e., without -a or -p options)
fsck exited qith status code 4
Failure: File system check of the root filesystem failed
The root filesystem on /dev/sda1 requires a manual fsck

Could you please help me out!

Manual fsck can also be run from Live GParted, ie right click on the root partition and click Check, or from the Grub Menu's Recovery Environment which, for a single-boot LM system, is accessed by pressing the SHIFT or ESC key during startup.
