Fb is in a bad situation. It needs a MANUAL fsck to fix the file system.

HELP US, Jamieeeeeeeeeeee !!!


When Suresh and I connected a display and tried to see what was going on, the fb computer was in a file system check.

This was because Suresh did a hardware reboot by pressing a power button on the front panel.

Since the file checking took so long time and didn't proceed fast, we pressed the reset button and again the power button.

Actually the reset button didn't work (maybe ?) it just made some light indicators flashing.

After the second reboot the reboot message said that it needs a manual fsck to fix the file system. This maybe because we interrupted the file checking.

We are leaving it to Jamie because the fsck command would do something bad if unfamiliar persons, like us, do it.


In addition to it, the boot message was also saying that line 37 in /etc/fstab was bad.

We logged into the machine with a safe mode, then found there was an empty line in 37th line of fstab.

We tried erasing this empty line, but failed for some reasons. We were able to edit it by using vi, but wasn't able to save it.
