I've been using Ubuntu 12.04 installed on a USB ever since the release. Just today when I booted up, I see an error showing up at my splash screen saying
An error occurred while mounting /home
below the 5 dots giving me two choices.
Either press S to skip mounting, which is no good cause when I do, I see my log-in screen come up, I enter my password --PAUSE-- the log-in screen starts again, then again I enter my password --PAUSE-- the log-in screen shows up...and the history repeats on every attempt.
Press M for manual recovery, and when I press it I see
Filesystem check or mount failed. A maintenance shell will now be started. CONTROL-D will terminate this shell and continue booting after re-trying filesystem. Any further errors will be ignored root@TUD:~#
on black screen then I can use
login mohd_arafat_hossain to log-in and then I see...
No directory, logging in with HOME=/ mohd_arafat_hossain@TUD:/$
I just want to recover my Ubuntu to the way it was before. Unfortunately I don't know how to by myself :(
