Last night I forgot to attach back the AC power cord of the laptop and had left it on all night running Ktorrent and amule, so obviously all the battery drained out and next morning, the laptop’s backlight dimmed out everytime I reached the grub so I could not see what was on the screen, but what’s more was that I got a press Ctrl + D to continue or give root password for maintence and also message about it not being able to read the superblock.

Hunter helped me around, we did the fsck, changed the UUID in menu.lst and fstab, nothing worked. So I had to reinstall, this is the 2nd reinstall Ive done in just 2 days, I can’t help but believe that am cursed about being stable with linux.

Although since /home being on a different partition, I don’t have to worry about losing out on settings, I also set up a /usr this time, so I won’t lose out on the applications.
