Hi there all
I'm a real newbie on this, but I'm enjoying very much...
I made my home/ folder on another drive, so i could format the ubuntu drive and it would stay with same appearance. But got some problem in the middle, I cant figure out what it is, can anyone help me? (but I can skip it)

boot prob log: checkfs

Unless you copied /home somewhere else its on the the same drive different partiton as / (root)



# / was on /dev/sdb1 during installation
UUID=8ceb35c7-fe35-4704-891f-9939f44fbec9 / ext4 relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /home/ was on /dev/sdb8 during installation
UUID=31e2abc2-6121-4196-95e4-2af515ee9646 /home/ ext4 relatime 0 2

yeap, i put the /home/ folder on another partion.
Is that the boot problem?

From your fstab, it looks like a separate /home was set up during the installation.
I think this will fix the startup check problem.
run
sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.backup
sudo gedit /etc/fstab
and change

# /media/WinVir was on /dev/sdb6 during installation
UUID=52201ea5-ed47-4d69-a32f-afe68cdf4fa8 /media/WinVir ext4 relatime 0 2
to:

# /media/WinVir was on /dev/sdb6 during installation
UUID=3F7282C429352938 /media/WinVir ntfs-3g relatime 0 2
And save.

No, I think that worked alright. I think your WinVirtual partition wasn't listed right, so the filesystem checker couldn't find it.

Probably not. SoftwareExplorer seems to have found a real problem - and a fix

BTW: blkid has a bug - sometimes it cache does not get updated - to get around it - make blkid ignore its cache. (see man blkid)


sudo blkid -c /dev/null
