I ran your suggestion & problem solved. Thanks. I did run e2fsck -r (not -y I'm assuming that -y gives an automatic yes answer to querys. man fsck doesn't list the -y option ) without specifying the partition with no result. I thought that running e2fsck would automatically default to checking the / partition.

e2fsck -y /dev/hda1
..... to hda7 (or however many partitions you have).

Subject: [SLUG] corrupt filesystem
On booting my box I get the message that filesystem is corrupt. I ran
fsck -A -V and get the value of 8 (operational error). The manual I've got
says that if the value is 4 or more then 'more recovery measures are
needed'. But it doesn't say what these measures are or give other options.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
