Ruh Roh – Raspberry Pi doesn’t like being randomly non-gracefully rebooted

Accidentally power cycled my RasPi a few times too many and it corrupted something. It comes up in command line which I’m fine with except that the paths are all fubar and you have to absolute everything, e.g. /usr/bin/vim.tiny filename.  Plus it complains LOUDLY when it boots – something on the ext4 volume is corrupted but I cannot get fsck to fix it.

And I cannot mount the SD card on my computer – the system won’t even see it.

Now the card was the former 8GB card I’d gotten with my phone. But I ordered a 32GB card and I’ll just flash the raspi distro on it and start over.

And what a production getting it on HDMI. First off the HDMI1 port on my TV is recessed and then lateral so you have a very small space in which to plug in an HDMI cable. But I had to order a right angle HDMI male to female adapter. That solved the problem as it just fit in the cable head space.
