I downloaded the Ubuntu Live CD and tried to chroot into the partition as follows

	mount -t ext3 /dev/sda2 /mnt
	chroot /mnt

and get the error

	chroot: cannot execute '/bin/bash': file not found

or something similar. Tried specifying other commands to no avail. It looks like the kernel can't see the underlying command structure, even though it mounts correctly during boot and from Ubuntu.


After you mount /dev/sda2, see if /mnt/bin/bash exists; if it does, try "ldd /mnt/bin/bash" and see if the libraries exist in /mnt/lib.

Thanks for the response, /bin/bash was there and the /lib folder was untouched afaik. Bit the bullet and reinstalled over the weekend and all is well again.

Thanks again
