Gettext test froze my system...Now I cant find anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I was almost finished! I ran the damn test for gettexts final install and it froze my system up! I had to reboot and now I cant find anything!!!!!!!!!!

The files that were once in the /mnt/lfs are no longer there. Im thinking because the partition isnt mounted, but I cant get it mounted!!!!!!!!

i have ran mount a dozen different ways and it wont work:

mount /dev/hda1..............nothing
mount /dev/hda1 $LFS...............nothing
mount /mnt/lfs.............nothing

can someone tell me how to get back into my filesystem? Can I reenter the filesystem and pick up where I left off?

OR AM I FORCED TO START ALL OVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi,

LFS should already be set (LFS=/mnt/lfs) as root:

mount /dev/hda1 $LFS

Or

mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/lfs

Then try doing chapters 6.1 up to 6.3 (Introduction, Mounting Virtual Kernel File Systems, Entering the Chroot Environment).

You probably get some errors about dirs that already excist (chap 6.2), you can ignore these.

After you finished 6.3 you should be able to restart with gettext (6.30). Make sure you remove the gettext builddir to start with a clean sheet.

Hope this helps.

Hi again,

Just re-scanned the first few chapters and you need to do some more:

6.6. Creating Essential Symlinks
6.8. Populating /dev (again: ignore errors about excisting dirs)

Hope this helps.
