fsck: Recover broken file system without root password
Recently my notebook crashed while resuming from hibernate and the
fsck-check on the boot afterwards failed.
But as intelligent as I am, I did not set a root password (yet), so I couldn’t enter maintenance mode to run
fsck to fix the file system.
After some research I found a quick-and-dirty solution to my problem:
init=/bin/bash to your GRUB kernel command line (cf.) and run
fsck there :D
