I have a FC10 box which won't boot.
It's now booted off DVD into rescue which wasn't able to find the system to mount in /mnt/sysimage.
It's an out of the box default install with all the LVM horror etc - with the system on a single sata drive for the system. Homes are on separate disks which are not the issue.
pvscan, vgscan and lvscan all show the right stuff (after activating the VGs)
ls -l /dev/VolGroup00
shows all the LogVolxx linked from /dev/mapper/...
I can mount and umount /dev/sda1 which is boot on a directory such as /mnt/foo just fine.
However, any of the following result in "no such file or directory". The mount point does exist so I guess it's referring to the device.
mount /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /mnt/foo
mount -t ext3 /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /mnt/foo
mount /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 /mnt/foo
mount -t ext3 /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 /mnt/foo
I'm just about to try fsck on the LV device - but this is a little slow since the box is in another country and I don't have console access. http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forum/...lies/frown.gif
Any other clues?
