http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I go to bed and my computer is fine and working. I come home from work, no signs of a power outage, and my computer has errors regarding a corrupt disk. Drops to Cmd prompt. My problem is that I want to do the proper recovery on it, and my googling doesn't seem to help. All I see is stuff about how FAST fsck is, but no one wants to talk about how to use it. Besides, I better check with people before I mess everything up. I have the FC12 install disk I used loaded up now, at the cmd prompt. I have my system mounted, an EXT4 LVM. Do I unmount and then run fsdk.ext4 -fp /dev/mapper/vg_mysys-lv_home ? (lv_home is the one reported as corrupt during boot) (HowTos)
