Cancel that. I found a fix. Thanks to veryone who offered help. (I needed to do approx. fsck /dev and then the name of the bad (inconsistent) sector, and then a huge bunch of fix (y/n) yes's. )P.

Thanks for this.  Unfortunately, my xubuntu laptop will not boot up, otherwise I would.I am reduced to using my girlfriend's windows laptop to connect with IRC.I tried to use two different windows clients, but I get the feeling I was communicating with nobody. I realize you are not offering help, but I am reaching the end of my patience. My (Xubuntu) root system needs to perform a manual fsck (which I assume is a file system check). However, the only place I can seem to get to is not a terminal place to enter commands (at which I am absolutely a beginner) but rather is " (initramfs) " which does not recognize ordinary commands like those that begin with " sudo ".Thanks againPeter

I don't know what it was supposed to be, but I assume some kind of web
interface to IRC.

Don't. Web interfaces to IRC suck little black toads.


sudo apt-get install hexchat

Then (first time only) enter your chosen nickname (and 2nd and 3rd
choices in case your first choice is taken), leave the server set to
freenode (Ubuntu Servers) and click Connect.

When it's connected, change the channel suggested from #ubuntu to
#xubuntu and click OK to join the channel.

Anything you type in the text input area gets sent to the channel for
people to read, EXCEPT commands preceded by slash, like /quit.
