hosed /var directory
Help! My /var directory got hosed and I don't know how to recover it!
/var is on its own partition and sonehow the superblock got trashed
while visiting a Flash-heavy web site. My system froze and I had to do
a cold reboot. I want to blame Netscape, but it's possible my swap file
(a separate disk) stopped working and I supposed that resulted in
corrupted data. I didn't know what else to do, so I reformatted that
partition and lost everything on it.
X doesn't have the correct keymapping anymore (i.e. backspace doesn't
work, and I couldn't figure out how to use xmodmap to fix it);
I can't use apt-get or dselect because the status file doesn't exist
I don't know what else mat be broken...
I really need someone to help me fix this. I couldn't find any
information (maybe I didn't know how yo search for it...) on this
Thanks in advace for your help!
