I'm trying to transfer programmes, etc. from an old to a new install.
At first I had a little trouble with Thunderbird, but Cosmo solved that one, pronto. So, just use the same procedure for Play On Linux, right? Wrong. All kinds of errors.
O.K. why not use "Backup " ? no can do.
Allright: why not use "Kbackup"? Looks like it would work except it can't navigate to the other drive ( /dev/sdb). No problem; just follow the instructions Flemur gave me in:
which worked quite well. Oh, but wait: the drive needs a label, well, use "Gparted", no, drive is mounted. Try "umount": no, drive is unmounted according to "mtab". Mint Live disk? same result. Hold on, partner!...here's a couple of commands called "e2label" and "tune2fs"... and here comes the pièce de résistance!....
Code: Select all
2 ~ # e2label /dev/sdb5 "2" e2label: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/sdb5 Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock.
Does this make sense to anyone? Or, was that the signpost up ahead and I'm in the (computer) Twilight Zone!
