FSCK code 4

Postby alexankius » 2019-01-17 10:18

Hi all,

Have been running Debian for a year now off an SSD (that is where Debian resides).

I got an FSCK error code 4 on the root device which is /dev/sdh1

I run both all of the folloiwng

fsck /dev/sdh1
fsck -fy /dev/sdh1

but the message is that there are still errors.

When I reboot i get stuck again at the same FSCK error code....

What filesystem is on /dev/sdh1?
Code: Select all
# wipefs /dev/sdh1

When I run wipefs I get

Sh: wipefs : not found

I'm at the stage were during boot I get a prompt that the root filesystem requires a manual fsck

BusyBox v1. 22

It's in the util-linux package and resides at /sbin/wipefs, which is not in your normal user's PATH.

EDIT: hold on, are you saying you can't boot normally and only get to a busybox prompt?

exactly, I can't boot normally.

The boot sequence is interrupted and then I get the FSCK error code 4.

When i run fsck at the end of it all i get a message that there are still problems....

So i am stuck at the BusyBox....

I've been trying to upload a few screenshots but get an apachee error:

Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, forum-admin@forums.debian.net and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

any pointers?

Upload the screenshots to an image sharing site and post a link here.
