A failure code 8 on boot since update [SOLVED]

fsck died with exit status 8. failed code (8). log file created /var/log/fsck/checkfs. Please repair the file system manually

I'm getting this at boot   ...and i am lost as can be regarding fsck. It started happening after installing lubuntu 13.04 beta 2 on a different (primary) partition  **irrelevant, i think ~ yeah?**, and after updating && upgrading my Waldorf install on Sunday night **relevant?**

no resizing or creating of new partitions took place, and when i manually run...

# fsck -t ext3 /dev/sda5

...in the root terminal that it dumps me in, it just reports that the crunchbang partition is 'clean'.    ...what does that mean as I was expecting a number (hopefully a '1')?

Thanks for any help,

*lost in space*

I think your UUID might have changed

type

sudo blkid

in the terminal to check UUIDs for your partitions match those in /etc/fstab

Re: A failure code 8 on boot since update [SOLVED]

Cheers okubax,

i just did that and indeed the UUID's for sda1 are different in fstab to the one reported from blkid. sda1 is the lubuntu partition.

So, i know it's not a failing HDD at least, but how may i get the numbers to tally? Can i just change the details in fstab?

Many thanks!

add:

I did the manual edit and no longer get the error 8 on boot smile

Thanks folks for the help - i was verging on doing a reinstall  lol
