Probably a bad subject but I am in panic mode. I have my good 2009.2 on sda7. I have a little play partition on sda8. I had labeled it minime when I installed minime on it the other day. No problem booting back to my good ol install. Today I installed 2010 KDE to play with it on the sda8, during install changed the label of partition to 2010. Makes sense, no? Well, tried to boot 2009.2 but it halts with error fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve "label minime" or something real close to that.
It gives me an option to give root password for maintenance (I am afraid to do that and damage my good install where everything is right now) or I can "Type Control-D to continue" what is this control d? do they mean control key and d? Didn't work. Neither does typing the phrase Control-D out.
Found it - would delete the post but maybe this will help somebody sometime. In the old install the fstab referenced label of minime. I just changed that and everything is OK again.
Still would like to know why I couldn't continue. It was only a spare partition to the old install. Typing "Contol-D" would only reboot
