    Mounting Debian Partition Error

    Hi All,

    I have Debian(Woody-stable) on /mnt/hda5, but, when attempting to open the mnt from the desktop icon, I get the following,

    Could not mount device.
    The reported error was:
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda5,
    or too many mounted file systems

    Is this because Debian is using etx2.? Cheers.

    Try to find out what filesystem there is on the partition.
    <code>
    dd if=/dev/hda7 of=yy bs=100k count=1
    </code>
    You need to be root for that. Then type
    <code>
    file yy
    </code>
    In my case this yields "yy: Linux rev 1.0 ext3 filesystem data (needs journal recovery)". The error part comes, of course, from the incomplete copying.
