I'm trying to run fsck from a Linux Mint Julia live CD, but something seems to be going wrong. When I run:
sudo fsck /dev/sda5
I get the response
fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2 e2fsck 1.41.12 (17-May-2010) fsck.ext4: Device or resource busy while trying to open /dev/sda5 Filesystem mounted or opened exclusively by another program?
I've tried umounting the disk from the terminal to no avail:
umount: /dev/sda5 is not mounted (according to mtab)
and I'm running out of ideas. The one person that looks like they had it solved got someone to help them via MSN, so I'll never know how they fixed it.
Thanks in advance
