I was rebuilding my kernel over the weekend when I got Ext-fs errors. I then
had a bit of a poke around my system and it all looked ok and so I rebooted.
That was the last I saw of it :( When I rebooted I got a kernel panic error.
I then booted off the slackware CD and tried to mount my root partition
When I try to mount it I get: Ext2-fs Error (device id0 (3,66)):
ext2_check_descriptior Block bitmap for group 0 not in group (Block 3)!
I tried "e2fsck -n /dev/hdb2" to see: Attempt to read read block from
filesystem resulted in short read while trying to open /dev/hdb2. Could the
be a zero-length partition?
I can mount /dev/hdb1 (it was my /boot partition) and my swap partition
If I try fdisk /dev/hdb it all looks fine. Just as it should be.
Any suggestions? Does anyone know of any software to scan the drive and
I have a backup of most of the stuff on the drive so I'm not totally lost
but there is enough on then for it to be a problem.
