Still can´t mount after e2fsck

  • Nobody/Anonymous


    I´m trying to mount an ext3 partition. Yesterday I got it working from command line, tried to do it from the preference pane to get automount. It didn´t work. So I followed the hints in this forum and ran e2fsck on the partition. The output from command line can be seen at the end of this post.
    After this, not only mounting the partition from the preference pane but also from command line no longer works. Code again at the end of this post.

    Does anybody have any ideas how this could have happened and how to fix this problem? By the way, I´m using OSX86.

    thanks in advance for your time.

    mount from command line:

      Well you got to Pass 4: Checking reference counts , and got a Segmentation Fault.  So e2fsck didn't complete cleanly.  So probably your filesystem is still corrupt.  try using >>   sudo  fsck_ext2 /dev/disk1s5  <<   seems the fsck_ext2 program is more intune with the extfsManager stuff than the OS native fsck program.
