Home directory not detected [Abandoned]
Posted: Fri Nov 22, 2013 1:24
Strange problem today... I turned on my computer as usual and when it booted, it went straight to a command prompt. Logging in caused a message:
The BIOS reports no problems with the hard disk that contains the HOME partition. Moreover, when I boot from a live CD of any distro, I can plainly see my home directory and all files intact. Any ideas on how to fix this quick? I have Limbo enabled and installed a few updates yesterday but stupidly I did not pay attention to what they were because all updates have been smooth as silk lately. Unfortunately, logging in as root and trying to check for updates in this crippled state that might automagically fix the problem fails too. I've had my system installed for quite awhile now and do not want to have to wipe and re-install. Please help!!
Code: Select all
No directory, logging in with HOME = /
