    unable to resolve label /home


    Dear Mike,

    I am having the same problem, and so while searching on net, i saw this post.

    I am having same problem, I have red hat installed on the system and while booting, it is giving error
    fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'LABEL=/home1' FAILED.


    *** An error occurred during the file system check.
    *** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot.
    *** When you leave the shell.
    Give root password for maintenance
    (or type Control-D)
    (repair file system)#

    as you asked tgs728 to give the command cat /etc/fstab, I gave the same and system is giving following:
    LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
    LABEL=/home1 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
    LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
    and there is more written to it.

    can someone please help me to correct my system, i dont want to lose the data,

    also it is showing
    bash: /home/programs/ccp4/setup-scripts/sh/ccp4-setup: No such file or directory
    bash: /home/programs/ccp4/setup-scripts/sh/ccp4-other.setup: No such file or directory

    where ccp4 is a program which we use on the system which is installed in /home/program folder.

    any help will be greatly apreeciated.
    Thanks and regards

    Can you boot up the machine to the (repair file system)# prompt and issue these commands please?
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    The above code is a lowercase L, not an i or 1.
    Code:
    cat /etc/fstab

    Can you also post the output of
    Code:
    fdisk -l

    You could use e2label to find out what the label names are
    Code:
    e2label /dev/sda1
    e2label /dev/sda3
    You can then modify /etc/fstab accordingly
