dmesg output:

Post by panorain » Sat Sep 28, 2019 1:03 am

Hello, when I was looking through dmesg output on my computer running LinuxMint 19.1 Tessa 64 bit edition I came across the following line 2nd to last in

Code: Select all

dmesg
output.

[ 184.693579] FAT-fs (sdb1): Volume was not properly unmounted. Some data may be corrupt. Please run fsck.

If I do try to run

Code: Select all

fsck
the following message is displayed in terminal:

fsck
fsck from util-linux 2.31.1
e2fsck 1.44.1 (24-Mar-2018)
/dev/mapper/mint--vg-root is mounted.



WARNING!!! The filesystem is mounted. If you continue you ***WILL***
cause ***SEVERE*** filesystem damage.


Do you really want to continue<n>?

At this point I am not experiencing any boot problems to my knowledge but am wondering what I should do at this point.

Thank You for your help with this matter.

Normally you can run fsck with live usb but since this is logical volume, I am not sure, somebody else may chip in.
If I have helped you solve a problem, please add [SOLVED] to your first post title, it helps other users looking for help, and keeps the forum clean.

You were trying to check the wrong partition. This is about your ESP partition. You don't need a live environment, just from your regular system run this to unmount:

Code: Select all

sudo umount /dev/sdb1
And then to check and repair, if necessary, and finally remount:

Code: Select all

sudo fsck -y /dev/sdb1
sudo mount /dev/sdb1

Thank you very much for your replies.

I ended up loading a live environment of Mint 19.1 64 bit on the computer. Then I opened a terminal window and entered the following command (to what I can recall) since it's been a few days now my apologies.

Code: Select all

fsck -A /dev/sdb1
The error message no longer seems to be appearing in 'red lettered' output when looking through

Code: Select all

dmesg
output anymore.

When I look through the manual page for fsck.

Code: Select all

man fsck


I do not see any reference to a -y flag though.

Thank You

Because fsck is a wrapper, the actual command in this case is fsck.fat, see the manual of that.
