Hi,

I'm hoping that someone here may be able to help me ;).

I have a filesystem that gets checked everytime my machine boots, (as this is a desktop system this is quite often, and unfortunately takes a while). I decided to attempt to fix it, and booted both a knoppix (3.1) CD and a Gentoo 1.4 CD to attempt to run fsck on the partition when I noticed that running fsck returns the following

# fsck.ext3 /dev/hdb3
e2fsck 1.30-WIP (30-Sep-2002)
Group descriptors look bad... trying backup blocks...
fsck.ext3: Invalid argument while checking ext3 journal for /dev/hdb3

google seems to think that the closest matching problem to what I am having is the link below (thus my reason for being here):
https://listman.redhat.com:443/archives/ext3-users/2002-December/msg00050.html

I have attempted the debugfs solution as presented here, but when I try to open the partition in anything other than catastrophic mode (thus the inability to write and attempt setting the journal to 0) cannot be tried, the error is as follows:

root 0[root]# debugfs -w /dev/hdb3
debugfs 1.30-WIP (30-Sep-2002)
/dev/hdb3: Can't read an inode bitmap while reading inode bitmap
debugfs:


I have also attached the output of tune2fs:
root 0[root]# tune2fs -l /dev/hdb3
