Can't boot, LVM and inode problem
I got a BIG pronlem.
When I try to start my Fedora 3 (with LVM) I get the following error .
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel <version> ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quit
Uncompressing Linux, Ok, booting the kernel
Red Hat nash version 4.1.18 started
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
Found volume group "VolGroup00" using metadata type lvm2
2 logical volume(s) in volume group "VolGroup00"now active
EXT3-fs error (device dm-0): ext3_get_inode_loc: unable to read inode block - inode=507905, block=1015810
mount: error 5 mounting none
And from there it is just haning there.
I am no expert and have no clue what I can do to repair this , I got some data on there that I realy must have.
THe problem started yesterdat, while I was working, I clicked on the bar to start my email program and I got the error that my mail program was not installed.
I then tried some other things but nothing was starting, I checked the messsage file (/var/log/ ) but nothing has been writting to this file for the last 30 minutes, Then I did something realy stupid, I rebooted
I tried to boot from FC3 DVD and the boot was mounted without a problem ( I think because this is outside LVM ) but the rest gives me problems.
Is there some tool I can run to recover from this.
