Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support

I was doing a disk image save with G4L all went great till I rebooted (of course) lol....i got a boot error

Bad magic number in superblock while trying to open /dev/hdb1

Then i get this at a promt

An error occurred during the file system check
dropping you to the shell; the system will reboot
when you leave the shell.

Warning -- SELinux is active
Disabling security enforcement for system recovery
run 'setenforce 1' to reenable
give root password for maintenance
or type (control-D) to continue

I enter the root pass and get

(repair Filesystem) 1 #

I need to know how to fix the bad magic number so i can get the server back up

the distro is Red Hat Fedora core 3
OMG !!!!!!

i am so proud of myself


i fixed it......what happend was

fstab was mounting the hdb1 as ext3

well G4L wrote the back up as ext2

so i went to linux rescue.....fdisked the drive....and remad the filesystem as ext3 and bamm

Glad you fixed it.
