My /home has been moved now I can't login


Help please.

I used gparted live cd to move some partitions around. I noticed that that my /home drive changed from hde6 to hde5 when I finally got a grub diskette to boot my menu.lst file for ubuntu and login as my user I get an error about not finding my /home so I go in safe mode and edit the /etc/fstab to let is know where my /home is. I am still getting the same error when I login. I am a linux newbie and have searched for some time and can not find anything like whats happened to me.

Any help appreciated.

The problem may still be in your grub.conf/ menu.lst. If the home in there is incorrect you may get errors from my experience (Although I was dumped to an Ash shell, and didn't even make it to the login screen)

I found the solution. It seems sometimes things are left in the tmp that may point to the wrong path for /home so I deleted all items in tmp and now I can boot to my /home.

Now I need to figure out a grub error 17 after loading stage1.5

Learning Linux is challenging and always an adventure.

Hi Lonnie, I'd be glad to know what you find in Grub. I got lods of Error 22's in an effort to duplicate a system and move the duplicated disk into another system with SCSI and IDE disks. Ended up doing a siple install for the new sytem and then copying the main directories.
