/dev/hda6 contains your root filesystem, right?
When you are dropped into the shell:
- check if /dev/hda6 really is not there: 'ls /dev/hda*'
/dev/hpts is what came closest... It wasn't there indeed.
- check if the modules you need for your disk are loaded:
'cat /proc/modules' (check for ide-disks too!)
- if any modules are missing, use modprobe to load the manually
I modprobed ide-core and ide-disk. This gave me the /dev/hda devices!
- check if /dev/hda6 now appears
- after it does, type exit to continue the boot
YAY! It boots again! :D
One thing: how do I get it to boot normally?
I now did a dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-2.6.15-1-k7. I hope this is
enough next time I boot (I'll report back if it isn't, and if you
already konw it isn't, please let me know!)
