installing Slackware 13.37 as a virtual machine. unable to mount /dev/sda1
getting the error can't read superblock
created 3 partitions
/dev/sda1 of 8G type 83
/dev/sda2 of 1G type 82
/dev/sda3 of 1G type 83 for /home
done using fdisk
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
only to get error:
mount: /dev/sda1: can't read superblock
I don't know enough to know if this represents an elementary oversight on my part, or a genuine issue with virtualization of slackware via VMware Player. Can anyone give me some insight?
fdisk is used to manupulate the partitions not repair them. I really cannot think of an easy way out of here - assuming that you used the ext4 file system apart from reinstallation. Read the man pages before you execute any comand as root.
I do not think this is bug of anykind with VMPlayer or Slackware.
It looks to me as if you only prepared the disk and didn't actually create the filesystems. You can make an ext2 filesystem on /dev/sda1 by typing
If the above works, create more filesystems on the other partitions and continue installation.
