Hi Everyone,

After installing an earlier rc version of Gnumeric and associated dependencies on my rc11 pdax (stupid on my part) , I now have a frozen pdax.

Pdax tries to boot but freezes at the following:

cramfs: wrong magic
FAT: bogus logical sector size 381

This wouldn't be a problem except that there is a file in my user folder that I *really* need to recover.

Is there any sort of rescue method I can use to mount and get at the partitions on my c-860 or force pdax to boot into the console.

Any help much appreciated.

turn off power supply, pull out battery, press D+B , hold and insert battery. Login as root,

CODE
mkdir -p /mnt/xxx
mount /dev/mtdblock3 /mnt/xxx
cd /mnt/xxx/root/Documents


and copy your file to inserted CF or SD card.
if you use one big root partition, mount mtdblock2:

CODE
mount /dev/mtdblock2 /mnt/xxx
cd /mnt/xxx/home/root/Documents

Thanks so much Sash!

I've got my file and re-installed Pdax.

I just donated some money via Paypal.

Thanks so much to you and the team for all your hard work.

Without Pdax my Z would be sitting in a drawer!
