Re: [tlug] Hosed my home directory


Thanks for replying.
mount -n -o remount,rw /   # / must be declared in /etc/fstab
mount /home

I got this far, and it said:
mount: special device /dev/disk/by-uuid/b9a08a1c-c538-479d-a3d3-f366-cd67aa80 does not exist.

However, I suspect there's relevant information you didn't tell us.
Well, I'm not sure what I missed before, but there's more now.

This last time when it booted, it ran fsck, as Ubuntu does every 30 boots or so. It said there was an error, and to run fsck manually.

Then it took me to the command prompt like it did before.

Not knowing what else to do, I typed in "fsck".  Then it said:
gsck.ext3: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to re-open /dev/hda1
e2fsck: io manager magic bad!

My magic is bad? Am I not performing the correct sacrificial rituals?
