/ is ext3 not ext2!!
I've tried fsck /dev/sda6 and sda8, / and /home, both clean no error msg.
I've tried fdisk -l and all seems in order.
A bit stuck now, come to the end of my knowledge and all google results are just too advanced for me.
Any ideas please?
ps: I have a live mdv 2008 one cd if needed.
One of your problems is that you may be passing fsck the wrong file system type. The default is ext2. If your file systems are actually ext3 then you need:
fsck -t ext3 /dev/sda6
Check /etc/fstab to make sure that you have the file system type correct. You may have to use your Mandriva CD to check your fstab:
mount -t ext3 /dev/hda6 /checkit
Once you get your fsck command straight then run fsck on /dev/sda6 and /dev/sda8 from your Mandriva CD.
fsck -t ext3 /dev/hda6
fsck -t ext3 /dev/hda8
At that point you will probably get some meaningful error messages about whatever your basic problem is.
