SoSo I installed Fedora on another partition and then...

Postby Google Spider » Tue Apr 22, 2008 7:34 am

Hi all :!:

Just installed Fedora and now when I boot into Linux Mint it takes me to command line asking for root password for maintenance. I can get into the GUI by pressing Ctrl+D but what is really worrying me is that it said that some disc has died :cry: and a log has been saved in /var/log/fsck/checkfs :roll:

The log is this

Tue Apr 22 16:54:48 2008

fsck 1.40.2 (12-Jul-2007)
fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'UUID=c18c7636-683e-4646-9057-e89e405b95da'
fsck died with exit status 8

I really don't understand the "log language" so if someone interpret this for me :wink: ....and what should I do now :?:

That is called UUID hell :wink:
The UUID is quite like md5sums for iso files, but for your disk partitions.
You will have to edit your /etc/fstab file.
It is well explained in the Linux Mint wiki :
In libro veritas

Now switched to : ArchLinux
