Full Version: Lost A File And Can't Boot

I've been running red-hat for 3+ years without a hitch (but am still a newbie). When I went to boot up today it got as far as "Checking root filesystem" The next line is "/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit: fsck: command not found", followed by [FAILED], followed by:
*** An error occurred during the file system check.
*** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
*** when you leave the shell.
Give root apassword for maintenance
(or type Control-D for normal startup):
I first tried to do the control-D which brought me back to the same point again. I have logged on as root, but do not know how to restore the fsck file. Any input will be greatly appreciated

you will need to run the command:

fsck

allow it to fix any errors that you have ...

If the machine was shutdown improperly, this can happen ... but if the machine was shutdown properly then it might be an indication of a hard drive problem.

When I type the command fsck it returns the following line:

bash: fsck: command not found
