I am unable to boot into my Ubuntu system.
First I get that fsck died with exit status 4 Then I try to do it manually as prompted and I get that an Inode has illegal blocks and asked to clear it.
Upon googling, I found that is because my HD has some problems
I booted via Live cd and took a
dd of the entire Ubuntu on an external HDD just in case.
Is it safe to clear all the illegal blocks.
How do I safely restore my environment if I replace my HD.
Is there any thing i can do in the meanwhile to continue to use my laptop without significant loss of data.
Perhaps a related error, the x server fails to start
