Episode 2 of my mounting saga


Hi all
I could'nt make dd work, so i had another idea. I reinstalled Suse 10.2 on my computer,on /hda1 it use to be
hda1 /
hda2 /Data
hda3 swap

When i reinstalled on hda1 it became
hdb1 /
hdb2 /Data
hdb3 swap
I don't know what happed there, but it works. The only problem mow is hdb2
did not get mounted during the installation. In Yast i tried the Partioner
program and got error -3033. When i tried to mount it using the terminal
mount -t ext3 /dev/hdb2 /mnt/Data
i got this
wrong fs type,bad option,bad superblock on /dev/hdb2, missing code page
or other error.
Has anyone got some ideas for me
Thanks

To do what?
Do you have only one hard drive? Do you have any USB devices, flash drives attached?
Have you removed any drives?
Where is your mount point? You initially indicate it is /Data which would put it in the root partition and your mount command shows it in the /mnt partition. Which is it?
Was there any additional information with the Yast error 3033?
What does fdisk output show under ID column for hdb2?

The dd refers to a prevoius post.
There are no usb devices
Have not removed any hdd

Sorry, i made a mistake it should be
When i reinstalled on hda1 it became
hdb1 /
hdb2
hdb3 swap

Fdisk ID for hdb2 83

Additional info from Partioner

mount -t auto /dev/hdb2
you must specify the file system type

Thanks

What is hdb2? A data partition? Your /home partition?

Is the above the error you get in Yast partitioner? You don't have a filesystem type specified which is the error. I've never used Yast partitioner for this so am not familiar with it.

The mount entry in your first post should have worked if you had created the mount point: /mnt/Data

Your hdb2 is a Linux partition so it should work
