PROBLEM ON DESKTOP:
gigabyte ATA sized board with athalon 64 x2 7500 4G ram on two channels
installed openSUSE 11.1 from 64b DVD and it ran for a while on my 1TB SATA disk partitioned LVM.
boot … 70M
root … 20G
home … 900G
now, suddenly, the machine only wants to boot to a disk recovery prompt.
you can only log in as root and startx works so file management is an option.
yast starts and finds all of it mounted etc.
but file manager finds the home folder to be empty.
the next thing i may try will be to start yast from the disk recovery prompt and format the root partition and install again.
that way it may recognize the home partition and give it OK’s again.
the recover system options on the install DVD won’t find any ROOT partition on the hard drive. they just say to rescan using all options or some such nonesuch.
anyway, that didn’t work either.
anyway, if anyone has any ideas about these two things you could let me know. i would appreciate it a ton.
