Core Booting Issue
« on: January 02, 2009, 02:33:28 am »
I am getting the following prompt when booting my Core:

"/dev/sda1 contains file sys errors, check forced."

The unit is running some sort of check, as you can see it counting from 1% up to 100% (complete).  Once this has been completed the following has been popping up:

"/dev/sda1 Duplicate or bad block in use!"

Any thoughts on how to resolve?

Boot in rescue mode, or better yet from a live-cd as I suspect this to be your system drive, and run fsck.ext3 -f /dev/sda1 (assuming it is a standard ext3 filesystem) and if it encounters serious problems it will ask you what to do (usually just say yes).
