Waiting for root filesystem device /dev/mccblk0p2
/dev/mccblk0p2 was not cleanly unmounted, check forced.
/dev/mccblk0p2:: xxxxx/xxxxxxx files (0.1% non-contiguous), yyyyy/yyyyyy blocks
mount: mounting /dev on /real_root/dev failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /proc on /real_root/proc failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /sys on /real_root/sys failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /run on /real_root/runfailed: No such file or directory
FATAL ERROR: Could not find a suitable init on the root filesystem
(Of course the x-s and y-s represent numbers that are irrelevant to this question)
Then there is a prompt and ls does show me the dev, proc, sys and run folders with content. Also the real_root folder is there but that only holds lost+found.
I am wondering, is my sd card broken, does it need a new install (second SD card to break, had one go corrupt about 8 months ago on my then Pi2) or is the Pi broken?
Before I got this message my Pi3 was completely unresponsive to keyboard or web interface. I turned off the power and after turning it back on I had a huge list of messages that flashed by. A lot were: Fix? Yes (or something like that).
In the end it did not work and I took the power off again and since then this is all I am getting.
If I need to reinstall it (sigh) I have made a manual how to put all the software back, but can anyone recommend an easy way to image the sd card periodically automatically so I can just put the image back?
Any other things that are best practice? Make a partitioned SD card?
