I accidentally removed the partition of my main hard drive, now when I am booting into Linux mint it says "Welcome to emergency mode! After logging in, type journalct1 -xb' to view system logs, "systemct1 reboot" to reboot, "systemct1 default" or D to boot into default mode."
It gives that text three times
When I enter one of the commands after entering my root pass, it says " no command 'journalct1' found, did you mean: Command 'journalct1' from package 'systemd' (main)"
How do I log back on to my computer and get it working again?submitted by /u/YongyiTsien
I have recently updated my backup software, WereSync to version 0.3. Now I need people to test it on a variety of on all of your various and a sundry drive setups.
WereSync should copy your drive's partitions and files, giving you a clone of your original drive. The goal is to have WereSync make your drive bootable as well, but that isn't working currently. After it's done you can use the clone alongside your original drive, since all the UUIDs will be different. WereSync will run fine in the background, and can clone to a smaller drive. You can find WereSync's documentation at here.
What I need you to do:
I can only test WereSync on my computer, because that's the only Linux computer I have access to (well I do use some VMs, but that's besides the point). I'm using complicated programs like gdisk, fdisk and parted in WereSync, and they have lots of strange interactions in different enviroments. I need others to test WereSync and help me figure out where the bugs are.
To help me you need to:
Install WereSync from pip:pip install weresync
Run it on your systemsudo weresync -C source_drive target_drive
Report any errors to the issue tracker. Please be sure to post the contents of /var/log/weresync/weresync.log and fdisk -l.
I would appreciate any and all testing, even a simple comment saying something works properly. Thanks in advance!submitted by /u/Donyor
