    damaged ubuntu installation


    Yesterday I finished downloading Fedora 8 and decided to install it. The partition layout is attached. In sda6 I have ubuntu installed and in sda5 fedora 7. So I boot from the cd select sda5 to format as ext 3 and mount to /. I don't install new bootloader and the installation finishes successfully.

    Today I try to boot to ubuntu and I get the following:
    * Checking file systems...
    fsck 1.40.2 (12-Jul-2007)
    fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'UUID=474be0d3-b3cd-45cf-804b-153e31ef7a7f-
    fsck died with exit status 8
    [fail]

    * File system check failed
    Please repair the file system manually.
    * A maintenance shell will now be started
    CONTROL-D will terminate this shell and resume system boot
    bash: no job control in this shell
    bash: groups: command not found
    bash: lesspipe: command not found
    bash: Commnad: command not found
    bash: The: command not found
    bash: Dircolors: command not found
    bash: Command: command not found
    bash: The: command not found
    root@valemon-desktop:~#

    Anyone willing to help me fix this?

    Hi valemon !

    Something is wrong with UUID only. Boot up from LiveCD, mount sda6 and replace UUID=xyz with /dev/sda6 in /etc/fstab and menu.lst files.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Thank you for replying devils_casper!

    This UUID was referring to hda5, the fedora installation. So in the fstab file in the /dev/hda5 section I put # and ubuntu boots now. I never liked fedora...
