Best of Technical Support
I am a Linux newbie. Whenever I accidentally shut down my system without halting, I get a message telling me to run disk utilities, and remount hdd. I was wondering, what disk utilities? How do I run them? How do I remount disks? —VoodooXpert, firstname.lastname@example.org
The utility to run is fsck which checks and repairs a Linux file system (whether it is ext, ext2, etc.). In order to mount one yourself, type:
mount -t filesystem-type device mount-point
mount -t ext2 /dev/hda3 /archiveJust make sure you already have the mount point created (use mkdir), and you are using the correct file system type (ext, ext2, vfat, etc.).—Mario Bittencourt, email@example.com Many on-line help resources are available on the SSC web pages. Sunsite mirror sites, FAQs and HOWTOs can all be found at http://www.linuxresources.com/.
