New kernel made files disappear
I compiled a new kernel for my Ubuntu 9.04 computer. I had a lot of files on my desktop including the source for the kernel. When I installed and booted into the new kernel all the files are gone. When I look at the space available on my hard drive it looks as if the files are still taking up space. The files are not hidden, atleast not on the Desktop.
I thought that when you change the kernel it leaves all your files intact, so what happened to my files?
