Recover Data in Dead ReiserFS Filesystem
I am wondering how i can go about to get my data back on a dead ReiserFS.
My Kernal Paniced out for some reason when i rebooted and then when i tried to boot again it said i had a invalid Super Block on a ReiserFs So i read some documents and tried the reiserfsck --create-sb option from boot disks i had for Slackware and went through the options.. trying to recreate it.. It created one and then i tried to do a reiserfsck --rebuild-x (can't fully remember the command) so it would try to rebuild the system.. and it Kernal Panics out there.. So i think i created the Super block wrong but i can't create a new one because it says one is just fine.. Is ther any way for me to edit the super block again? Or any way to recreate teh Super block to try and get it the same as before? I haven't written anything to the drive.. i have tried using the dd option and it also kernal panics out. I am mainly wanting my MySQL database and some web files since my wife create a large photo gallery of our daughter.. and i know she wants them back.. the harddrive is create like this..
/dev/hda1 256M Linux Swap
/dev/hda2 5000M Linux (ReiserFS) /
/dev/hda3 10000M Linux (ext3) mounted /home
/dev/hda4 Rest of Harddrive (ext3) mount /develop for all my source downloads
Its a 20 gig Maxtor.. I can't get more detailed because i am reinstalling Slackware on another 20 gig harddrive.. Just wondering if there will be any way to pull my data of that partition the other Partitions are just fine. i was running Kernel 2.4.22 also.. Thanks..
