This is the situation:
I moved /dev/hda
with SuSE 9.0 on ext2 to /dev/hdc
and put in a new 250 GB /dev/hda
. On this I installed SuSE 10 on ext3 on LVM (except for / and /boot).
The new system worked all right "out of the box", the old one booted again after I edited its /etc/fstab.
Then I added a new partition (/dev/hda9). Since YAST failed to comply and did not add a new physical volume, I used fdisk to create the partition and then YAST to add /dev/hda9 to the volumegroup
Everything works fine on SuSE 10 (I copied the 5 CDs into the new partition and installed from there). When I now try to boot SuSE 9.0 I get during boot up the error
fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/systm/home
<- the LVM volumegroup
/dev/systm/home: the superblock could not be read or does not describe
a correct ext2 file system. If the device is valid and it contains a ext2 file
system the superblock is corrupt.
fsck.ext3 failed (status 0x8) Run manually
I then edited the /etc/fstab for old SuSE 9.0, putting a hash in front of the line
/dev/system/home /home ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 2
To no avail. Any ideas what happened and what I could do here? How would I find out whether old SuSE has loaded her LVM module and how could I add it under the circumstances (broken off boot)?
