Re: [vox-tech] Re: please help

If it is just a matter of getting a file off ASAP, why not boot with Knoppix as a rescue cd and copy it off?

Short on details.  Did someone tell him that his home directory is almost
certainly safe and sound?  He may be freaking out.  I know that I would.

Is /home on its own partition?

Do we have output of "mount"?  Maybe it's as simple as a KDE thing.  Has he
tried to log in on the console?

Do we have dmesg output?

What happens when he tries to manually mount /home?

I just called Mike to see if I could help him quickly by phone. It seems like his home directory has disappeared, and he says a file system check did not fix things. This is probably outside the scope of my expertise. Is someone able to help him?

1- Michael Siminitus, [address, phone removed] – call anytime -ASAP please

2- see full specs at: http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Gateway/200ARC/3501609sp83.shtml

2- Mandrake 10.

3- I cannot log on, except as root or the new user I created. The error I keep getting is:
* There was an error setting up inter-process communications for KDE. The message returned by the system was:
Could not read network connection list.
Please check that the “dcopserver” program is running

4- sorry, it's on my laptop and I can't retype that whole thing.

5- I have a paper trapped in the machine I need to turn in tomorrow. I don't know if it is possible, but it would be GREAT if I could bring the laptop to someone tomorrow morning who could help out.
