Well , Thanks for your suggestions.
1.Which kind of file system is being used on the volume having trouble?
A: it uses the ext2fs filesystem on CentOS 4.6 x86_64
2.Do you have backups?
A: that server is used to backup other servers data , so itself has not any
3.Is the volume small enough and do you trust yourself enough with dd to
duplicate it off to a
USB|firewire|esata disk? (now THIS _is_ risky. :)
4.have you read `man fsck` to see why it was being suggested to run it
WITHOUT the a or p options?
A: Yeah ~ I have read that . In particular , "-p" options ,. This option
is mainly provided for those sysadmins
who don't want to repartition the root system to be small and compact( which
is really the right solution)
