  1. [ubuntu] Re: Flumoxxed by Dual Boot Installation ...

    Running ubuntu from an ext HD sure works for me.

    No surprise that I have no idea how to accomplish that.

    Tx oldfred and Ralph L for hanging in with me. Much appreciated. And you've given me much more to grapple with.

    Thanks for bearing with me on this.

    The command:

    I take it you mean:

    sudo e2fsck -f -y -v /dev/sdb1

    I have, many times before, but I can do so again.
