i 'accidentally' did rm hda2 and now i cant even boot the system
it keeps keeps checking the file system on every reboot and saying hda2 not found which'd be rite cos i sorta deleted it somehow, any ideas on how i can get it to run again.
i deleted the device, yep.
cfdisk shows the two partitions still but apparently when checking file system during boot up hda2 cant be found - cos it ws deleted.
mite just have to reinstall i suppose, its just tht it was the dhcp, dns and the proxy, had the mail for outlook users, had apache, had mysql php etc etc..basically a pretty crucial machine which i've only just realized..thanks heaps though, i'll have to spend the sunday on it i guess.
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix,arch, bodhi, studio, suse, mint
you can boot with the cdrom rescue, then create the
boot, mount the partition with linux, and go in the
device directory /dev
then /mnt/bin/mknod hda2 b 3 2
should create the device.
the full command just depends on where the partition
is mounted mknod ( make device node) b (block)
3 (first hard drive) 2(second partition)
