    Question fsck: error 2 (No such file or directory) while executing fsck.ext2 for /dev/sbd4

    Firefox had stopped working and had closed my browser window and would not let me open a new one until I had closed the old one but I couldn't, so I restarted my computer. After selecting to boot Ubuntu, my screen showed the following:

    /dev/sbd4 contains a file system with errors, check forced.
    Inodes that were part of a corrupted orphan linked list found.

    /dev/sbd4: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY.
    (i.e., without -a or -p options)
    fsck exited with status code 4
    done.
    Failure: File system check of the root filesystem failed
    The root filesystem on /dev/sbd4 requires a manual fsck

    BusyBox v1.22.1 (Ubuntu 1:1.22.0-15ubuntu1) built-in shell (ash)
    Enter 'help' for a list of built in commands.

    So, then I tried that and got this:

    (initramfs) fsck /dev/sbd4
    fsck from util-linux 2.27.1
    fsck: error 2 (No such file or directory) while executing fsck.ext2 for /dev/sbd4

    What do I do to fix this? I am able to see all of my partitions when I boot from usb to try Ubuntu.

    gregcb; Hellol

    One must run a file system check from an external means - can not test/check/repair a file system while in use ( mounted )/
    Further in grub .. grub will not understand a identifier such as sdb4 - that is not in grub speak .

    So what we do is work from say a liveUSB from the try ubuntu terminal.
    Make sure that the target remains identified as 'sdb' , Depending on when a device is recognized by the system is what the device name is given.
    Code:
    sudo parted -l
    now "assuming" that the target remains as 'sdb4' then run:
    Make sure swap is not in use:
    Code:
    sudo swapoff -a
    Code:
    sudo e2fsck -C0 -p -f -v /dev/sdb4
    if errors: -y auto answers yes for fixes needing response see: man e2fsck
    Code:
    sudo e2fsck -f -y -v /dev/sdb4
    hope is that all is fixed right up
    THE current(cy) in Documentation:

    Happy ubuntu'n !

    . . . are you sure it's not just a simple typo?

    Code:
    /dev/sdb4
    rather than

    Code:
    /dev/sbd4
