Live CD failed
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen:
I attempted to boot with live-cd, but it failed. I retried it with
verification, and that failed, but it left me a message indicating:
/bin/sh: can't access tty -- job control turned off (initramfs)
I then tried it in compatibility mode, and that too failed. I received
the following error message:
/var/log/fsck/checkfs If writable please correct file system manually.
Most interesting is that the live-cd worked fine this morning and last
night. My reason for using the live-cd is that a couple of days ago, my
linuxmint os went down while attempting to repair a system loop created
by wine. Attempting to get rid of broken symbolic links ended up with a
result of getting rid of a lot more stuff than merely broken links.
Earlier today the disk was viewable with Centos, but I am not sure how
much is left to restore. The documents folder is gone, and most of the
desktop is gone. The only thing left is just one snapshot of the screen,
displaying some of the error messages from wine.
I have a question for you. I am trying to recover what is probably
linuxmint 15, and just want to pull a couple of files off my computer.
Will I still be able to recover the drive if I use a recovery disk
created with mint 16? I am running LMDE w/cinnamon.
Your help and interest is appreciated.
