I just switched from Elementary to Manjaro (the latest KDE min ISO, encrypted disk). In Elementary OS I used to shutdown my machine by running
shutdown now from a terminal. Unfortunately, when I tried doing so in my Manjaro installation the file-system got corrupted somehow (?), as I’ll try to explain in the following.
After shutting down the computer with
shutdown, the machine wasn’t able to open a tty due to errors in a mapper file (I don’t quite remember what the error message was, but it was something like that) and it asked me to run
fsck /dev/mapper/luks-4db6e442-011a-4887-9170-46d9191ebb5b manually. I then run
fsck and answered every question it asked with the default answer.
After that, the machine was able to open the tty. However, now the (hard drive) file-system appears to be broken: when I try reading/writing/stating certain files I get the error message “Structure needs cleaning”, which I understand as an indicative of file-system corruption.
Could anyone help me figure out what’s going on/how to fix it? I don’t mind reinstalling Manjaro btw, but I would prefer an alternative solution. If there’s some technical information you need, please ask me (I just don’t know what that information might be).
