Re: Recovery



You said that you were using the new 2.4.17 kernel.  Since you claimed
to have forgotten that you were using ext3, is it possible that you
forgot to include ext3 support into the new kernel?

This problem that you're having is common among people who try to mount
an ext2 fs as ext3 or vise versa.  Check your fstab & then boot into
single user mode & manually mount the FS.

BTW, ext3 is backwards compatible with ext2.  So although your
supberblock excursion was not the best way to go, it should not have
damaged anything so long as it didn't corrupt the fs itself.
