    Ext3 problems


    I am not able to mount vg (lvm) which was mounted previously
    as ext3.
    Now i get the results:
    Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes
    Root inode is not a directory. Clear? yes
    and nothing more. This volume group is merely 2 Tb.
    After I try to mount it, I get this result:mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/test_gv/test_lv,
    or too many mounted file systems
    (aren't you trying to mount an extended partition,
    instead of some logical partition inside?)
    - the typical mistake.
    does anybody know what how much time this program will take?
    Thanks!

    What program? e2fsck? Just run it as "e2fsck -vC 0 /dev/test_gv/test_lv" to make it give you a completion bar.
    However, was it really a wise move to make it clear your root inode? Wouldn't that make the filesystem unusable?
