slackpkg upgrade from 12.1 to 12.2 and now LILO can't find my HD
I used slackpkg to upgrade from 12.1 to 12.2 (update, install-new, upgrade-all, clean-system), which I've done before for previous upgrades and everything seemed to go ok this time until I tried rebooting.
Warning: LBA32 addressing assumed
Fatal: raid_setup: stat("/dev/sda")
I answered 'yes' to the 'do you want to run LILO' question after it installed the new kernel.
e2fsck complains about a bad superblock saying it's either the wrong filesystem or that it's corrupt.
It lets me boot into single-user mode and I tried fdisk and cfdisk and I can't find the hard drive at all.
My lilo.conf and fstab are the same as they've always been as far as I can tell.
I wouldn't think that upgrading versions would corrupt my hard drive.
And no, I have no backups, unfortunately, since there's nothing of great importance on this machine. It's more something for me to tinker with and learn Linux, so if I have to reinstall, it's not the end of the world, but I'd like to be able to fix it if possible.
Any help would be much appreciated--thanks in advance.
