Hi,Thanks for the reply.
/root is not a seperate partition no.I just used the default partioning for Fedora Core 6.
I can't see anyone hacking into the box,It was only switched on two days ago,and the only access to it is through our local network.
I can't really see anything on /var/log/messages that looks funny.What can cause this kind of thing,I don't believe the box is dying,its working fine,doing what it must,its just the /root folder that's missing.
Also,i've noticed the root folder is present
bash-3.1# cd /
bin boot dev etc home lib lost+found media misc mnt net opt proc root sbin selinux srv sys tmp usr var webmin-setup.out
bash-3.1# ls -lh root
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 147 Jul 12 2006 root
So the file is there,but it does not seem to be a folder?
Is there anything i can do to restore my /root and have the box displaying the root@localhost instead of the bash-3.1 ?One guy suggested a reinstall,but surely i can fix this in another manner?
