    Thumbs up [Solved] What is wrong with my HD and what should I do?

    Edit: I realised that i had unmounted the swapdrive! DUH!!!!

    I have an RT-N16 with western digital EADS10 1GB EXT3 formatted. I have used wengis tutorial.

    In my syslog i get:

    Code:
     Aug 22 22:57:13 e2fsck: /dev/discs/discb/part3: Inode 103694499 has illegal block(s).
    Aug 22 22:57:13 e2fsck: /dev/discs/discb/part3: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY.
    Aug 22 22:57:13 e2fsck: 	(i.e., without -a or -p options)
    When I run e2fsck on my unmounted partition I get:

    Code:
    e2fsck /dev/sdb3
    e2fsck 1.41.9 (22-Aug-2009)
    ext2fs_check_if_mount: Can't check if filesystem is mounted due to missing mtab file while determining whether /dev/sdb3 is mounted.
    /dev/sdb3 contains a file system with errors, check forced.
    Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes
    Error allocating block bitmap (4): Memory allocation failed
    e2fsck: aborted

    Well, the Asus recognized it very well. The problem was errors on the harddisk and I had to check/repair it with e2fsck manually. e2fsck required more than the avialable ram. I mounted a swapdrive and e2fsck did the job.
