OK what I have tried now is
mount -t reiserfs /dev/sda7 test
At this point I can nolonger see anothertest.
Which is all right and sane.
I now use debugfs to unlink anothertest.
I then unmount test
Test is empty.
But if I try to mkdit anothertest I'm told the file already exists.
If I then fsck the disk anothertest is noe linked into lost+found
SO I then rm -rf the directory in lost+found.
But I still can't do mkdir anothertest under test as it still says the
I can do a rm -rf anothertest fine and everything is OK then.
I susspose the real question I have here is rm the directory from
lost+found the right thing to do.
And after I have removed the directory from lost+found is the directory
actually taking up any space on the disk.
I'm actually learning quite a bit from this so I suspose it is worth the
time. Hopefully somebody else is learning from it as well.
