fsck at boot / won't stop / infinite loop

05/04/2009 - 05:13 von riggor9999 | Report spam
Hello -

I have a SUSE SLES 10.1 SP1 x86_64 system

I had a power loss and had some file root system corruption (based on
running fsck in display only / read only mode).

I set the system to do a fsck at reboot by doing BOTH (which I suspect doing
both is the root of my problem) - no flames please :-)

1) at the root directory I did a touch /forcefsk

and also a

2) shutdown -rF now

what is happening now - the system performs a fsck, reboots, performs fsck,
reboots, performs fsck, reboots ... I am stuck in this loop and cannot
figure out how to break out.

This happens in FAILSAFE mode as well as normal mode.

When I try CNTRL-C during the fsck - as it just throws up and says error in
service module.

I have tried escaping out of GRB GUI and modifying boot options to include
fastboot - but that did not work.

Any ideas / suggestions?

Thanks

Boot from a live CD, fsck the partition and remove /forcefsck.
