Hi,
i have a problem installing the 2005.0 release.
I'm using the same configuration that worked in 2004.3(maybe i'am missing some option in the menuconfig?)
My root partition is ext3 (done with a mke2fs -j), and mounted in /etc/fstab as ext3.
During the boot i get the fowwlowing errors:

Code:
Starting devfsd:
/sbin/rc: line 271: /sbin/devfsd: No such file or directory


... an after that:

Code:
Checking root filesystem ...
fsck.ext3:No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/hda8
/dev/hda8:
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really
contains an ext2 filesystem, then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
e2fsck -b 8193 <device>
The filesystem could not be fixed :(


After log on as root i do a:
Code:
e2fsck -b 8193 /dev/hda8

... and the result is the same:
Code:
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really
contains an ext2 filesystem, then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
e2fsck -b 8193 <device>


If i try a
Code:
fdisk /dev/hda
or
Code:
fdisk /dev/hdb

i get the same result:
Code:
Unable to open /dev/hda
Unable to open /dev/hdb


and if i try to write on them i get a message saying that the file-system is read-only.

But the partitions are OK, if i boot from the installCD and chroot into my installation, they work OK.

Could someone help me please ?

Does this sound like the problem you're having?
