    filesystem error


    When ever I boot I get this filesystem error that says something like
    !! Filesystem errors corrected
    I know this isnt that important because it still functions correctly, but is there any way to fix this?

    Do you always shut down correctly?

    if you have a /boot partition then that may be the problem. for some reason this happens on my machine. however the MBR boot data is kept on my /dev/hda6/etc/grub (my suse partition) so it's no real harm.
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    Do you have ext3 file system? If yes, this shouldn't appear. Maybe you don't have boot loader instaled on MBR.

    once you startup run

    fsck.ext3 /dev/hdwhatever

    and see if you get any errors that can be fixed...

    Code:
     # fsck.ext3 /dev/hda3
    e2fsck 1.38 (30-Jun-2005)
    /dev/hda3 is mounted.
    
    WARNING!!!  Running e2fsck on a mounted filesystem may cause
    SEVERE filesystem damage.
    
    Do you really want to continue (y/n)?
    yes or no?

    Ok, you should unmount the filesystem first, if this is your root partition then boot up with your live cd, and run the command
