fsck.ext3 failed....

Hi All,

I had a problem with fsck.ext3 logged in as root.

tried fsck.ext3 -p /dev/hda9

didn't do anything... failed superblock...


VFS: canít find ext3 filesystem on dev ide0(3,9).

mount: error 22 mounting ext3

pivotroot: pivot_root(sysroot,/sysroot/initrd) failed: 2

Freeing unused kernel memory: 292k freed

Kernel panic: no init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.

Now what?
