[tlug] Hosed my home directory


Fortunately, this happened on my MythTV machine, so no crucial data is at stake here.

I have the home directory mounted on a separate partition. There was an additional partition I didn't need anymore, so I removed it and resized the home partition to take up the extra space.

But the home partition got reformatted in the process. There was one user directory, called "mythtv", and now it's gone.

So when I try to boot the machine, it gives me all sorts of warnings and mayhem about not finding home directories. When all is said and done, I end up at a command prompt.

I tried to go into the home directory and create a directory called "mythtv", but it said that it was a "read only filesystem".

Is there a way I can get the home partition mounted, and get my user directory back in there?
