I'm working on an old HP machine with 11.3 on it. (YES i know but 11.3 was the latest version I could get to run on this machine and its a chairity case)!
To make a long stort short they let some kid have the root password and he blew the system away. I keep a good incremental backup so I didn't think it would be a big deal to rebuild. Got the os on but when I restored the full backup it ate the superblock on the /home partition - that's problem 1, how do I rebuild an ext4 superblock?
Problem 2 is how can a tar backup/restore crash a superblock in thefirst place????
NOTE: ignore the signature block, Im running 12.1 now. Just havent updated it yet.
