Funny problem with the Mints

Postby Suizido on Tue Nov 13, 2007 6:04 pm

Hello!

Since I like Celena so much, I also wanted to give Daryna a try. In this case with the KDE CE (off course on another partition).

After I installed Daryna KDE CE, I started Celena later on which produces error messages. Then the system halts and says that something is wrong with the file system. Then I pressed Ctrl+Alt+Delete and suddenly Celena started?!?!?

And now I have to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete in every starting process. Funny since I have known Ctrl+Alt+Delete fo rebooting and not for starting a system. Somebody to know what is happening? I have one hint: After I installed Daryna, Celena didnt show all the partitions anymore. It only shows windows partitions and root partition.

Greetings, Suizido

There definitely is something wrong here
Can you describe your partitioning scheme?
A screenshot of Gparted would be nice
Also post your menu.lst

I have my system set up to triple-boot Celena, Daryna beta and Windows XP and it works fine. Not sure what your trouble is, but installing Daryna on a separate partition should not have broken Celena.

Hope you get your troubles sorted out.

Aloha, Tim

Es kommt irgendeine Fehlermeldung, dann wechselt er irgendwie in irgendsonen Modus, den man mit Ctrl+D abbrechen können soll. Dann sagt er bash und so und endet in einer Konsole. Wenn ich Ctrl+Alt+Del drücke, schreibt er zweimal term sonstewas und startet dann gnome.

Ich habe drei Windoof Partitionen und eine Linux-Partition mit mehreren logischen Laufwerken. Mint zeigt aber nur die Windoof-Laufwerke an. Die anderen Linux-Partitionen findet er nicht.

Wahrscheinlich funzt alles wieder, wenn ich die anderen Partitionen alle lösche und nochmal grub installiere.

Theres some error message then he changes the mode, that could be stopped with Ctrl+D. Then he ends up in a terminal after writing some bash messages. Then I press Ctrl+Alt+Del and he writes twice something with term and then... gnome starts.

I have three win...-partitions and a fourth partition with 4 logical drives (once swap). Mint only finds the Win-Partitions but not the other Linuxes.

Probably it ll work after I have deleted the other partitions and reinstalled grub.

Thanks a lot for every help.

Greetz, Suizido

It looks like your problem comes from the usage of UUID in your fstab.

On both partitions, edit /etc/fstab and change all UUIDs (sequences of funny looking characters) with proper devices names.

For instance:

Code: Select all
#/dev/sda1
UUID=dfihnwerfuobwefpojwefpwoejhf bla bla bla


becomes

Code: Select all
#/dev/sda1
/dev/sda1 bla bla bla


Good luck,

Clem
