How to access CLI from the "structure needs cleaning" error screen

Hi, new user here. This is where I’m at after first reboot (see screenshot).

to fix this, I need to do this:

sudo umount /dev/sda1
sudo fsck -y /dev/sda1  

How do I get to the CLI screen where I would issue these?
(I’m using the official touchscreen with the touchscreen plugin)


You’re already looking at the CLI if you can see the above, but unless you have a keyboard connected then you obviously can’t access it. You can access the same CLI remotely by using ssh:

BUT, I suggest you start again from scratch with a verified image download (check md5sum), a different sd card, and leave the device after boot a good few minutes to sort out various set up procedures before doing anything more.

Have you also had a look at:

Have a read of the Quick Start Guide …

P.S. Please always report what version of Volumio you are using, and the device type when asking for help.

Gotcha. Thank you.
Yep I was following the official quick start guide, installing latest version from scratch. I think my card is no good will try a better one.
