I have 3 hard drives in my machine. Two of them are 1TB drives with my old home partition on a software RAID1. I installed an SSD as a 3rd drive with a fresh Ubuntu 10.10 currently running. I now try to mount my old home partition, which gives me an error:
$ mount -t reiserfs /dev/sda5 /mnt/oldhome mount: special device /dev/sda5 does not exist
fdisk shows me that all partitions are there. /dev has sda and sdb in it, but not the partitions on them.
blkid shows me the following:
/dev/sda: TYPE="isw_raid_member" /dev/sdb: TYPE="isw_raid_member" /dev/mapper/isw_eahifbiigj_datadump1: UUID="247dbff9-236f-4fa7-a0d4-1f060d973a3e" TYPE="reiserfs" /dev/sdc1: UUID="6ba699d7-caaa-4a87-9deb-e7aca73984de" TYPE="ext4"
I can mount the third one, which contains some orphaned partition, living on sda1.
