where "xxxxxxx..." is a string of don't know what.
That's an identifier for your harddisk ... I hate that nonsense. It's only recently they came up with that UUID crap. I personally disable this stuff on my systems and use the classic /dev/hda6, /dev/hdb1
etc. designations -- they simply work and don't break so easily like this UUID stuff.
The error you get probably means that one of the harddisks cannot be found anymore. When you installed that second Linux it probably changed the UUID's of one of the disks, meaning that the previous installation cannot find it now.
Check this file: /etc/fstab
of your Linux installations. You probably will have to use a Live CD for this. If you say you share /home
between the two, then the entry for the /home
partition should be the same in both /etc/fstab
files. Obviously you will have to replace the one that doesn't want to work anymore with the one entry that still seems to work. Hint:
Don't delete any lines, just comment them out by placing a "#" on their beginning and then add your new corrected entry underneath the disabled one ... should anything still go wrong you can easily revert your changes by deleting the new entry you did and by removing "#" you placed on the beginning of the lines you disabled.
