That's strange, I never got that error message. Try running sudo tune2fs -L mint_root /dev/sda9 again, and make sure to use the label mint_root there. From what the error message says it would seem that this step might have caused the problem, but of course we can't always take error messages too literally...

ahh... well. I guess my mint installation was corrupt somehow. cause yesterday I got really pissed off and decided to reinstall Mint. But then I saw that the boot cd is corrupt. So switched to gOS now. So far so good. but touch wood....

Exclamation laptop having similar issues .

i'm getting the ALERT! message /dev/disk/by-uuid/ bae9ell4a####### does not exist, dropping to a shell

when i typed uname -r
2.6.27-11 -server

if it's something to do with kernel changes since updating ( ireally don't know what all this means , just read in other thread)
then ls -al /usr/src retrieves this :
drwxrwsr-x 4 root src 83 (date time)
drwxrwsr-x 11 root root 133 (date time)
drwxrwsr-x 22 root root 290 (date time) linux-headers-2.6.27-7
drwxrwsr-x 7 root root 417 (date time) linux-headers-2.6.27-7-generic

i don't have a live cd to boot from either . just the install cd ..
please any help really appreciated , i'm a complete greenie so if you could provide baby steps

thanks

Huh, never heard of gOS before. I'm checking it out on their website and it looks great. Good luck!

Perhaps the UUID in menu.lst is different than the UUID of your boot partition. Did you try doing what I did? (setting a partition label and mapping the partitions)

If, on the other hand, the problem has to do with the kernel, then I don't think I can help you.

Had similar problem but was able to resolve it.

I'm new to GNU/Linux and had the same error fipi had. I was able to resolve it on my box with a simple hardware adjustment. My motherboard has six Serial ATA slots numbered 0-5. I had my Main disk connected to 0 and my secondary disk connected to 1. Moving my secondary SATA cable from 1 to 5 fixed my issue.

Thanks pljvaldez for cluing me into the area of trouble. But, I'm glad I managed to solve my issue buy simply moving a plug.

-Cheers
