while rebooting thje machine (PC) i got the following massase (on my 10.3):

/dev/disk/by-id/SATA_Maxtor_6Y120L0_3KXCE8E-part3: UNEXCPECTED INCONSISTENCY: RUN fsck MANUALY

how can i fix this?
i cant remember how i did this a year ago, i also cann’t find my old threed whre some of you explained it to me.
i also want to knwo how i can fix the error, so it will not appar again on the next reboot…

i tried this, but it did not get the result i thought it would give:

fsck /dev/disk/by-id/SATA_Maxtor_6Y120L0_3KXCE8E-part3

the best/only way to fix it is to learn how and why the file system
got into a state that requires fsck

that MAY be caused by a hardware problem that can only be fixed by
buying a new drive…OR, it may be from a dirty shutdown…OR, most
anything in between…

so, it is actually impossible for us here to determine the CAUSE…

but, you might be able to find the cause in one of the logs in /var/log…

running fsck manually is simply a matter of booting from a Live CD and
running fsck…the way to run it is laid out in the manual for fsck…

but, it is probably real smart to make sure your data is well
archived…just in case it is a bad drive about to die…

if you were richard_klinky then you can go to the forum’s advanced
search page and just put you ID in, as well as set the approximate
time frame, and . . .

learn why the unexpected inconsistency occurred and then we can help
you fix it…

Thank you DenverD for wakening me up…
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You…

i remembered a stormy wheather… that couses a drirty shutdown…

since i forgot an password of an older account of me, with a old Emailadress, i had to create a new account…
i took a look in the memberslist, and found the old account… there is the answer i got before… old answer
i made the mistake to use fsck.ext3, the answer in the older threed saying: fsck /dev… that worked, i only had to be patience… this takes a longer time, but it works fine.

i personaly think i could better upgrade to the laterst version of OpenSUSE, in the summer when i have more time to instal it, and do the rest of the settings i want to do…

NIce you got it back, but please when you come next time do be more precise. Saying “it did not get the result i thought” is only usefull when you tell what you thought. And when you broke off the fsck, which I suppose you did, that is of cource not something to hide from us.

We have no crystal balls!
