Re: [opensuse] Running e2fsck to check ext4 files system

Thank you Carlos, but I do not have a 'rescue usb stick' :-) .

Why on earth not!? :-O

After bed and breakfast, that's the next thing you absolutely must have...

But rescue CDs are so much cheaper, and you won't be tempted to use them
in a pinch to store pictures of the grand kids on. I keep two different
varieties of rescue CDs: 1 under my pillow, and one near my box of cereal.

LOL, yes, you can't reuse a CD. However, the openSUSE 13.1 rescue image
(XFCE) on a USB stick can save files, configs, and you can even install
some new packages on it. Ie, you can customize the rescue image, and use
it for almost actual work in a pinch :-)

OMs fit in cases that are hard to loose between couch cushions or inside
slippers. (nuf said)

OMs are big enough to write legibly on them why they exist. (nuf said)

OMs work in puters that don't boot USB. (I still have many in use that won't.)

OMs are cheap. (no need to decide what stick can be erased to provide home to
latest iso)

I don't need separate rescue media often, as reduced need is one of the
pleasures of multiboot systems, of which virtually all my own are.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
