Linux Hard Drive Recovery Procedure.


I'm running mandrake 10 and my home directorys journal got corrupted. Now i managed to recover my files on a windows computer using R-Linux.

Now that i have the files, what would be the procedure i would need to go through to redo the partition (hda6) and get my files back over before there is a problem?

Thanks for the help!

This will delete any files left on that partition:

umount /home
mkfs.<whatever> /dev/hda6
mount /home

Then just copy the recovered files back over to /home.

Ok, got that going, but now when i bring over my files i try to logon to my account
it tells me it can read the connection list from dcopserver_localhost__0


Here's what my XSession log says.
