and answer the questions which come up (in all cases the answer would
probably be "yes"). HOWEVER, note here that you do NOT use the "-p"
parameter when executing the above: you do NOT want automatic fixes to
be done by e2fsck because you want to see what the information about
what the corruptions were.

After the error fixing has been done, type a slightly modified version
of the command above:

remount -o remount,rw /dev/sda2 <ENTER>

Type in 'init 5' - or simply reboot - to boot into the system.


Thanks Basil, that fixed the problem.

Good! :-)

If you suffer power failures or notice that the system is not behaving normally then I suggest you run the above 'fix'. Can't do any harm but could do a lot of good :-) .
