Did a yum update a few hours ago without looking what are to be updated. Turns out this is a big yum update, upgrading CentOS from 4.4 to 4.5.
Went out, came back, yum update completed. Shutted down server.
Just booted up the server to find that normal bootup now fails...
Checking root filesystem [[FAILED]]
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 is mounted. e2fsck : cannot continue, aborting.
*** An error occurred during the file system check *** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot *** when you leave the shell
Give root password for maintenance or type Ctrl-D to continue:
Luckily, this is a test server (while I'm waiting for VMpro support for CentOS 5.0).
Not so luckily, there are development scripts I am working on on the server. And being the genius that I am, I didn't back up! :-(
Joe and Jamie.... HELP!
