I got to http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-centos-5.2-p4
and when I power cycled my machine it was unable to boot. I posted here to find out if there is any way to correct this other than re-installing
I power cycled after having done Ch 8 (Quota) and part of Ch 9 (BIND9)
one of the steps for Ch 8 is to edit /etc/fstab, then run
touch /aquota.user /aquota.group
chmod 600 /aquota.*
mount -o remount /
I has some trouble with mount -o remount / but then I fixed a typo in /etc/fstab and the command seemed to complete without any message.
When I booted I got the error:
fsck.ext3: No such file of dirctory while tryin go open /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol100. The super block coun not be read or does not descip a correct ext2 file system ... you might try unning e2fsck with an alternate superblock
the only other /dev/&c I have is the swap file.
when I ran e2fsck -b 8193 /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol100 I got the message "No such file of dirctory while tryin go open /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol100"
Is there a way I can fix this without reinstalling the OS?
I'm prepared to reinstall, but it would be nice to avoid it. (It took between 2 - 3 hrs to install ...)
ps - I didn't make a copy of fstab before editing. I expect that is the last time I will make that mistake...
