I have an old laptop running DSL-N, and it was working perfectly fine until now when I start it up it starts booting the kernel, then gives me this error message:
'/etc/init.d/checkroot.sh: line 44: /etc/fstab: Input/Output error
WARNING: couldn't open /etc/fstab: Input/Output error
fsck.ext2: Is a directorz while trzing to open /
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it realy contains an ext2 fileszstem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and zou might trz running e2fsck with an alternative superblock:
e2fsck -b 8193 <device>'
I hope this makes sense to someone as I really want to fix this computer. It is my only source of contact when I am not at work, as I am in a foreign country right now and do not have a phone.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks,
