Dreambox check for disk errors (file system check disk) fsck.ext3

Published by:

Als je dreambox de laatste images van Gemini gebruikt, is de hdd meestal in ext3 geformatteerd. Dit kan je nakijken via menu SETUP / Hardisk.
Met fsck.ext3 kan je een corrupte harddisk (soms) herstellen. ( Doe dit enkel als je niets te verliezen hebt ).

Eerst unmounten:
type: umount -a
dit unmount alle drives

Syntax:
fsck.ext3
Usage: fsck.ext3 [-panyrcdfvstDFSV] [-b superblock] [-B blocksize]
[-I inode_buffer_blocks] [-P process_inode_size]
[-l|-L bad_blocks_file] [-C fd] [-j ext-journal]
[-E extended-options] device

Emergency help:
-p Automatic repair (no questions)
-n Make no changes to the filesystem
-y Assume “yes” to all questions
-c Check for bad blocks and add them to the badblock list
-f Force checking even if filesystem is marked clean
-v Be verbose
-b superblock Use alternative superblock
-B blocksize Force blocksize when looking for superblock
-j external-journal Set location of the external journal
-l bad_blocks_file Add to badblocks list
-L bad_blocks_file Set badblocks list

Ok.. here we go.

Type: fsck.ext3 -v -f /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1
