Re: Kernel panic

Hi Suddavanda,

I actually reinstalled the Linux on the same partition without reformating

The machine in trouble was my laptop.  It has 3 partitions on it, 1 root, 1
boot, and 1 swap.  After Linux Rescue and fsck, all folders and files were
being moved around and put into 1 single folder, lost+found.  So there was
only 1 folder under root partition after fsck.

I don't know how you guys use Knoppix but for me, it is just too slow.  I
used ftp in DamnSmallLinux(DSL) to back up all data in lost+found.

Then I reinstalled Linux 7.2 with new installation option and install
without formatting option.  It turned out all data in root partition were

During the installation, the partition table was not being recognized.  I
just printed the table and wrote it back, and it worked.

That was it for my story.  Let me know if you want more details.

I think I have already answer you ;-)

You should use a Live CD, Knoppix, for instance and mount your data
partitions, after that you can package all your that with tar -cvf or use
to clone partition to another disk (do not use dd if you are not used to
with it)
But, if your disk is damaged, there's no way to recover your data (unless
want to pay some corporation to restore your data).

As a said on the other mail, if the partition table is corrupt your only
choice is going to be to attempt a re-install.
