superblock blows me out of the water
I just put a new big disk in my box with MDK 8.2 on it. I partitioned it with 2 * 40GB ish partitions, /usr and /var. Then I rebooted.
It failed on hdb with something about a corrupt superblock. I tried "e2fsck -8 8193 /dev/hdb" that didn't work. I ended up doing "mke2fs -S /dev/hdb1" and "mke2fs -S /dev/hdb5" as I knew these drives were empty anyway.
But now it has been recovering inodes and stuff for about 4 hours and has stalled about 3 times and I have to reboot again. After it has stalled it tries to boot after I hit Ctrl-D and half the services don't start. I don't get it, it is only the new drive (hdb) that is corrupt why don't the services start on hda?
I only want a big database using symbolic links from the mysql directory on hda to exist on hdb. How do I stop the configuration from thinking it has /usr/<all my stuff> and/var/<all my stuff> on hdb instead of hda where I want it to stay?
I hope it recovers OK or I am really in for it with a deadline approaching
