take a look at your file system table
fdisk -l /dev/hda
I doubt there is any problem with your filesystem in regards to corruption,
so running e2fsck won't do much - at most your partition might be there, but
all your data maybe have jumped ship.
I can only see you to have this symptom if your trying to mount the extended
partition, which would come up with nothing, but since you said /dev/hda5 I
can't see this as possible as an extended table can not be hda5, hda5 is the
first logical partition
[root@proxy /root]# fdisk -l /dev/sda
Disk /dev/sda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 553 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 102 819283+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 103 553 3622657+ 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 103 437 2690856 83 Linux
/dev/sda6 438 539 819283+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda7 540 552 104391 82 Linux swap
In my case, if I tried to mount /dev/sda2 it would come up with nothing
anyone else have any ideas ?
I did a
but when I mount it it comes up with nothing.
or should I do an fdisk ?
