My laptop threw a wobbly recently (same time as kernel update?) I have got it to find the old kernel, but it still won’t boot…
It’s a 11.3 install, dual-booted with XP. The /boot partition is in the root partition - sda7.
Currently it’s dropping to a shell prompt, with the following error:
Mounting root /dev/sda7
mount -o rw,acl, user_xattr -t swap /dev/sda7 /root
Mount: unknown filesystem type ‘swap’
could not mount root filesystem – exiting to /bin/sh
Any ideas? Why is it trying to mount sda7 as swap? (not in fstab like that)
