    /proc/devices has some more information.

    Re: UGH just upgraded to Hardy and having an issue!

    Ok well I had posted, but for some reason it didn't go thru.. UGH! More lost time.. anyways...

    If I try to access /proc/devices I can see it for a brief moment and then usually the system crashes. Is there something specific I should be looking for in there? Is there anything else I can try to get my system back to working?? I know it has to be something pretty dumb... Another thing I notice at bootup is something about a swap fail.. did I already put that previously in my post? I think there may be a secondary partition or something that was created at upgrade and that's where things are getting messy.. I really hope I can get this working by tomorrow.. WHERE did the irc chat go?!?! I can't access it at all!?!

    Sounds like you are suffering from a hard drive failure. If you've got another computer go to your hdd manufactures web site and download the diagnostic tools and check your hard drive.

    Re: UGH just upgraded to Hardy and having an issue!

    cheeeese whiz.... my god if this isn't confusing the h=ll outta me!! Ok so just booted up again and got the whole manual fsck needs performed.. so I go ahead and fsck once again.. and get...

    fsck 1.40.8 (13-Mar-2008)
    e2fsck 1.40.8 (13-Mar-2008)
    /dev/sda1: clean; 383934/18972672 files, 18907091/37939497 blocks


    any ideas now?? for some reason though I can't get into /dev/sda now and I KNOW sda5 was giving me issues because before it was showing the UUID for it and now it's showing sda1?!?!? For a brief second I had something pop up about restarting normal, fixing blocks or fixing x and then it crashed... :/

    Re: UGH just upgraded to Hardy and having an issue!

    Ok.. so I was miraculously able to get into my home folder last night and everything is still there!! YEA!! So I think I will probably just move everything and start with a fresh install. Quick ? though... with my syatem jacked up as is, will I be able to plug in my external usb hd and will it recognize it?!?!? THANKS!!!!

    OK, I don't know a lot about your earlier issues on this thread; but, speaking from experience, you could be re-installing all of your problems again. What I mean is that you might have a corrupted burn on the USB drive (flashdrive?). Burn a cd with a good ISO burner at a slow speed (4X or so) and try a fresh install from that using your computers cd drive. Assuming that it does have a cd drive. Specs??

    Good Luck!

    Re: UGH just upgraded to Hardy and having an issue!

    Bob: Right now I don't have anything installed on usb. All I'm wondering now is if I plug in my external usb hd, will the system be able to recognize it so that I can move all the stuff off my primary so that I can just start with a fresh install? I've tried rescue with an install disk, but no such luck there. At least I'm able to get into irc now so maybe someone will be on there!
