You want to run a manual file system check in runlevel 1. When the boot process stops at "Freeing unused kernel memory" you may use this mode.



In Barracuda NG Firewall 5.0 and below, you can use the Active Recovery Technology (ART) to run a filesystem check.


1. Press the "TAB" button at the LILO boot prompt.


2. Enter the boot image name, which is equal to the kernel-version-number f.e. "2.4.32-") with following a "blank" and the number "1" (for runlevel 1) and press enter.


  2.4.32- 1


4. You will be asked to enter the bootloader password. Default is "ph10n".


5. The box now starts in runlevel 1. You will be requested to enter the root password. Enter the password.


6. Perform the manual file system check by supplying the following commands:


    For IDE HDD systems:

  /bin/umount /dev/hda1
  /bin/umount /dev/hda2
  /bin/umount /dev/hda3
/bin/umount /dev/hda4
  /bin/umount /dev/hda5


    ext2 file system:

  /sbin/fsck.ext2 -y /dev/hda1
  /sbin/fsck.ext2 -y /dev/hda2
  /sbin/fsck.ext2 -y /dev/hda3
  /sbin/fsck.ext2 -y /dev/hda4
  /sbin/fsck.ext2 -y /dev/hda5
  /sbin/fsck.ext2 -y /dev/hda6


    ext3 file system:

  /sbin/fsck.ext3 -y /dev/hda1
  /sbin/fsck.ext3 -y /dev/hda2
  /sbin/fsck.ext3 -y /dev/hda3
  /sbin/fsck.ext3 -y /dev/hda4
  /sbin/fsck.ext3 -y /dev/hda5
  /sbin/fsck.ext3 -y /dev/hda6



    For SCSI HDD systems:

  /bin/umount /dev/sda1
  /bin/umount /dev/sda2
  /bin/umount /dev/sda3
  /bin/umount /dev/sda4
  /bin/umount /dev/sda5


    ext2 file system:

  /sbin/fsck.ext2 -y /dev/sda1
  /sbin/fsck.ext2 -y /dev/sda2
  /sbin/fsck.ext2 -y /dev/sda3
  /sbin/fsck.ext2 -y /dev/sda4
  /sbin/fsck.ext2 -y /dev/sda5
  /sbin/fsck.ext2 -y /dev/sda6


    ext3 file system:

  /sbin/fsck.ext3 -y /dev/sda1
  /sbin/fsck.ext3 -y /dev/sda2
  /sbin/fsck.ext3 -y /dev/sda3
  /sbin/fsck.ext3 -y /dev/sda4
  /sbin/fsck.ext3 -y /dev/sda5
  /sbin/fsck.ext3 -y /dev/sda6


7. Reboot the system
