It is never going to be a good evening when the first thing you do when you get home is drop "linux repair bad superblock" into google.

Ouch, that sounds like pain.

No, that's not a good evening.

However, my evenings involve looking at the clock, realizing it's bed time, and figuring out how many hours of overtime to put on my timesheet.

ex2fs. I still don't understand exactly what all happened. My box lost one of the 3 drives, and the one that died was part of a logical volume. I reformatted the remaining one, but that didn't help. I finally booted off the rescue disk, deleted the logical volume, then re-created it once the machine would boot on it's own.

The "bad superblock" wasn't real - it was really complaining that half the logical volume was just not there. Fedora 5.

Anyway, it's all okay now, so I should get a good backup tonight for the first time in two weeks.

I think it would have been ext3 if it were FC5 rather than ext2 (but they are compatible).

Of course, ReiserFS would have murdered it. Sorry! Sorry! I couldn't resist...
