I ve been running a little home server with Mandrake 10.0 for a while now and this worked fine.
the Server is a simple 500Mhz P3 128 MB Ram 2 Harddisks (5GB + 1,2GB)
This morning I tried to boot but while boot the system halted saying:
Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted
in short read while trying to open /dev/hdb1
Could this be a zero-length partition?
Well, its not a zero-length partition...,
The system won't boot any further and only give a shell (Where I cant start any of ther server procesess like mysql httpd etc)
I can mount /dev/hdb5 manually and fsck won't print any errors...
I can't mount /dev/hdb1 and fsck will only repeat the error message above
If you have any !! ideas how i can fix the problem or at least backup my mysql-data (possibly over my network (which so far hasnt started) ) I ' d be appreciating it....
