    I can't boot knoppix

    Hello, I have knoppix 5.0 installed in my hard drive. And I can't boot. Grub show me these 3 init options:

    -debian gnu/linux, kernel 2.6.17. default
    -debian gnu/linu, kernel 2.6.17
    -debian gnu/linux, kernel 2.6.18-4-4-486

    And when I click in any of them a message as follows shows up:
    root (hd0,1)
    File system type is reiserfs, partitiontype 0x83
    root=/dev/sda2 ro ramdisk-size=100000 init=/etc/init lang=de apm=power-off nomce quiet lang=es vga=791
    [linux-bzimge, setup=0x1e00, size=0x127e20]
    initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.18-4-486
    inux-initrd@ 0x1fb340000, 0x4bb005 bytes]
    save default
    error 16: inconsisteng filesystem structure
    Before I got this message I had to shut down the computer because very often my mouse get stuck and can't type anything and even ctrl+alt+suprimir doesn't work and I have to shut down the computer by pressing the power botton, although I did it many times and didn't happen this

    I also opened an image on a ntfs partition with mozilla, and then saved it to a linux partition, maybe was this because in that moment the computer freezed and was the right moment when I have to boot

    How can I boot into linux again?

    thank you and cheers

    I think somehow, your filesystem became corrupted. Try running fsck on the HD, from the LiveCD.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Thanks for the advice, it's solved now, I didn't run fsck because I have seen your message now, but I entered a disk: systemrescuecd, and then I ran gparted, it has an option to correct errors, and then I did it and could reboot

    Thanks again and Cheers
