Press 'e' on the grub entry, add


at the end of the "linux" line. You'll end up in a bash.

mount -o remount,ro /
e2fsck -v -C 0 /dev/sdXY

Tested with 13.1 in a vm. Rebooting is a problem though, shutdown,
reboot, halt --reboot don't work (because systemd is not running!
WHAT A STUPID setup!), exit/ctrl-d, ends in a kernel-panic in the vm.
Haven't checked it out more now.


Thanks to all who responded about how to run e2fsck on (my) HDDs.

I ran e2fsck by using the 13.1 Rescue DVD.

@ David:

Using what you suggested above resulted in an error message stating that, "init=/bin/bash is not system<?d>, terminate plymouth".


Booting with "" simply took me to the normal login screen.

Anyway, running e2fsck showed that there were not problems with the file systems.


Using openSUSE 13.1, KDE 4.14.0 & kernel 3.16.2-1 on a system with-
AMD FX 8-core 3.6/4.2GHz processor
16GB PC14900/1866MHz Quad Channel RAM
