HPTesla,

Is you BIOS disk controller set to AHCI :?:

Not having it set to AHCI has caused problems before not seeing any disks.

Re: Sylvia suddenly will not boot

Could you paste back the results like so:

Code: Select all

[bill@XPS] ~/initrd_image/initrd $ sudo tune2fs -l /dev/sda6|grep Maximum
Maximum mount count:      35

I wonder why this happened in the first place?

Probably a check was never done for as long as you were running it.

What does this show sudo tune2fs -l /dev/mapper/mint--vg-root|grep Maximum

Re: Sylvia suddenly will not boot

Thank you. Would the disk normally be mounted, and if so, how do I force an unmount from the prompt. I doubt that it would be mounted at this point since a mounted partition should not be fsck'd as that could cause damage to the filesystem - and you wouldn't want that to happen. Run mount|grep root...

Re: Sylvia suddenly will not boot

From that prompt check if /dev/mapper/mint--vg-root is mounted and if it is unmount it.

Then runfsck -fyv /dev/mapper/mint--vg-root followed by exit when fsck is done.

It should continue on if fsck was able to repair the problem,

The first option should be to use entire disk - it seems like that's the one you want to use.

Welcome to Linux Mint and the Linux Mint forum :)

If exportfs won't cooperate, try using a symlink to "/folder esp2" and use that for the export.

Re: System shows 4.6 gb of ram in a system with 16gb

Well I have no clue here except maybe a kernel bug :?

One more place to check would be head /proc/meminfo

If you boot the live media, do these utilities report the same :?:
