Hey everyone,

I had a power blackout while my computer was running and after I wanted to start it again, I got the following messages:
Code:
/dev/sda6 contains a file system with errors, check forced.
Inodes that were part of a corrupted orphan linked list found.

/dev/sda6: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY.
                (i.e. without -a or -p options)

* Filesystem errors left uncorrected, aborting
* rc: Aborting!
* * fsck: caught SIGTERM, aborting

Failed to open /lib64/splash/cache/.splash: No such device or address  (is the splash daemon running?)
...

You can find the entire error message showing up while booting here: http://imgur.com/PgiUY1X

The /dev/sda6 device is mounted to /home. However, it is not mounted (obviously), but I can still mount it manually.
The login screen looks as follows:
Code:
This is (none).unknown_domain (Linux x86_64 3.18.12-gentoo)

(none) login:

Any help is very much appreciated.
Thanks!

You probably should boot from a rescue CD and run something like 'fsck -r /dev/sda6' on the unmounted filesystem.

See https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fsck#Tips_and_tricks
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fsck
http://linux.die.net/man/8/fsck

Note that as always there is some risk that you will make things worse but more often than not that does not happen these days with ext4.

I just ran fsck on /dev/sda6 and got a bunch of messages whether I want to fix some broken blocks. Then I restarted my system and it seems to work now.
By the way, I'm still using ext3 file systems. Does this make things worse?
