Unhappy Please Help. Recovering lost Home in Mandriva 2010.0.


Lately when i open my computer i encountered failed in loading system.
its goes like this.

Unexpected error, run fsck manually.....
log in as root.

I have to log in as root and type fsck try to fix bad blocks.
the mandriva ask me to reboot
so i reboot my computer.

after loading system, in log in screen. I click my username then type my password and press enter.

There is a message prompt on me.
"Your home directory is listed as:'/home/Gonzalo' but it does not appear to exist. Do you want to log in with the / (root) directory? it is unlikely anything will work unless you use a failsafe session.




Please i need help.

Amazingly, people just don't wait for you to post things...you went from initial question to follow up, in 30 minutes. Also, a brief search on here would bring up MANY articles about how to fsck a drive, if you had looked.

If you need **URGENT** help, then pay for support from someone...RedHat and SuSE come to mind. They're there for you 24/7. Otherwise, don't complain about "dont received any answers", after 30 minutes.

Yes sir. Thanks again.
There is a portion in Mandriva Live CD on how to check disk for bad blocks.
