boot hangs at fsck - DarynaKDE 4 044 beta hd install

Postby blues-guy » Wed Jan 30, 2008 9:04 pm

OK I had this problem with Daryna Gnome 4 hd install which eventually crashed in a big way so I installed Daryna KDE 4 044 beta which has been working fine ( more or less) untill now.

here is /var/log/fsck/checkfs

Log of fsck -C -R -A -a

fsck 1.40.2 (12-Jul-2007)
fwire-data has been mounted 35 times without being checked, check forced.
/dev/hda3: clean, 121949/9420800 files, 14875283/18824163 blocks
/dev/hda4: clean, 36627/9420800 files, 14821801/18828180 blocks

then system hangs when it should be checking /hdb ( 4 partitions - ntfs,ext3,ntfs,ext3).

As Mint Daryna KDE 4 044 beta "sees" the ntfs partitions but wont mount them , giving a message such as "hal-storage-fixed-mount refused uid 1000" I'm assuming that fsck is hanging whilst trying to access /hdb1 (ntfs).

I have posted in this forum earlier re similar HD problems before my Mint Gnome 4 installation crashed, but with no luck resolving problem which apparently has something to do with installing HDs from another PC, even though username and passwords are the same. I've done this before with other installations/distros without problems.

Help please

I'll give you a starting point
hal-storage-fixed-mount refused uid 1000

A permissions problem. uid 1000 is the first user - the super user with sudo and if there's only ine user it's you.
Makes any sense?
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
