    File system


    Ive got a test system running and everything was fine until i tried something with dump. The directory i used it on (database which was on /dev/hda6) was suddenly shown as completely full.
    When I rebooted the PC i got
    couldnt find matching file system: Label=/database
    I then entered the admin passwd and edited the fstab file to remove the database line so I could boot normally.

    How can I get the database bit back without reinstalling everything. -
    I.e /dev/hda6 with label database
    Using red hat linux 8.

    Judging from the symptoms, it seems that you managed to overwrite your filesystem. What exactly did you do with dump?

    If you really have overwritten your filesystem, recovering your database is somewhere between extremely difficult and impossible (depending on how far it was overwritten).

    Hi

    With dump I was just wanted to copy the contents of /dev/hda8 to /dev/hdc5

    I ran:

    dump 0uf /dev/hda8 /dev/hdc5

    I have used ext3 type for the filesystems but I noticed in the man pages for dump states ext2 could this be the problem?
