New Hard Disk


I have recently put a new hard drive in my Fedora Core 4 box
Re-Installed FC4
But I can't seem to mount my old hard disk to copy information off it.
When I try to mount it I get
[root@pc-00008 etc]# mount /dev/hdd2 /mnt/hd_fedora/ -t ext3
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdd2,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
So I do the dmesg | tail and get
[root@pc-00008 etc]# dmesg | tail
VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev hdd2.
ieee1394: Initialized config rom entry `ip1394'
ieee1394: Initialized config rom entry `ip1394'
VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev hdd2.
VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev hdd2.
VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev hdd2.
VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev hdd2.
VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev hdd2.
ieee1394: Initialized config rom entry `ip1394'
VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev hdd2.

I have even tryed editing my fstab file to
# This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
/dev/shm /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sys /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/hdb /media/cdrecorder1 auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/hdd2 /mnt/hd_fedora auto rw,noauto,user,exec 0 0

Can anyone help ??

LVM

Are you pondering what I'm pondering?.... I think so Brain, but - me and Pippy Longstockings? I mean, what would the children look like?
Perhaps lvm lvdisplay? lvm vgdisplay?

I only ask because your fstab shows logical volumes, so I'm assuming LVM is being used. Your re-install either skipped over the original drive, or perhaps your original drive's partitions need to be added to your new logical volumes. In this thread I got my "baptism under fire" on LVM.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=318669

I probably haven't been of much help, but if that thread - and some of the very helpful links in it - can't help you; call for "WhatsHisName". He is extremely knowledgeable on both FC and LVM.
