I have an old P-III 500. It doesn't have a bootable cd drive. I was able to put SuSe on it. I believe 10.2 is the version
ususe1:~ # uname -a Linux suse1 220.127.116.11-34-default #1 SMP Mon Nov 27 11:46:27 UTC 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I had four drives in it.
First drive had the OS
Drives 2,3, and 4 were configured as one drive using LVM
suse1:~ # cat /etc/fstab /dev/hda1 / ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 1 /dev/hda2 /home ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 2 /home/swapfile1 swap swap defaults 0 0 /home/swapfile2 swap swap defaults 0 0 proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0 debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto 0 0 usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0 devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0 /dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto noauto,user,sync 0 0 #/dev/vm/vmspace /virtual ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 2 suse1:~ #
One of the drives that made up /dev/vm/vmspace failed and naturally I did not have backups.
I need to recover what I can from the two drives that are left. I found some information about e2salvage but I don't fully understand it. Any help that can be given to recovery what is left would be appreciated
