Does anyone have any suggestions, as I've trashed my file system. I have
a back up, sort of.
Before trying to upgrade X to ver 3.3.1 I decided to back up my Linux
partition to my dos disk.
dd if=/dev/hda3 of=/mnt/dos/temp/999.img
As I messed up my upgrade badly I decided to use this backup.
dd if=/mnt/dos/temp/999.img of=/dev/hda3 #Don't try this at home kids,
Unfortunatley this seemed to be a mistake. It seemed to take too long
causing me to presume that I was stuck in a loop, I therefore Ctrl C 'ed
it. 20/20 hindsite is a wonderfull thing, I should have left it a couple
of ours before doing this.
Unfortunetly the first partition if FAT32, so I cannot use my Redhat
install disks as they don't have FAT32 support in the kernel.
I have a copy of the kernel on the first partition as well.
I have not had muck luck with boot disks, using them with loadlin, and
my kernel, they have not found a console (?).
rawrite.exe can only write to a: and b: drives.
I did think of using FIPS to create a new partition at the end of my
first one and put a small linux system on it with my kernel, but that
would turn /dev/hda3 to /dev/hda4 screwing it up worse.
Any suggestions, I dont fancy re-installing as it took me a while to get
things going properly.
