Subject: [gentoo-user] baselayout broke my system
Date: Mon, 14 Nov 2005 10:21:02
1 Hello everyone, I updated to something like baselayout pre9-r2 a few
2 days ago and I immediately started getting this on boot up right after
3 "Checking root filesystem":
5 The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2
6 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2
7 filesystem (and not swap or anything else), then the superblock is
8 corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate
9 superblock;
10 e2fsck -b 8193 <device>
12 I tried running that with /dev/hda3 for the <device> with no good
13 results. I booted to a LiveCD, chrooted, synced, and updated
14 baselayout to something like baselayout pre10-1 tonight with the same
15 results. What can I do to get this baby working again?
