Where is fsck?

Post#1 by anijatsu » 28 Dec 2014, 10:54

I've just installed Porteus as a replacement system for my friend's laptop, since his hard drive got corrupted pretty bad. I can't find fsck utilities in USM, and I have no idea where to look for them, as they seem to not have been included in the iso file I built on this distribution's website. Where can I get it?

hi fsck you can use it from console, the file system check is included in porteus, but you can use it from cli,open console and type two time esc key and then you have a list of command that you can use from console
