I turned on my computer tonight and booted into Pardus, the new kernel that was in the updates.
I got the familiar orange screen, then at the time the screen goes blank and I await the login screen, I saw a terminal prompt and some error messages. They went away and the login screen came up as usual.
When I got in, I went to the command prompt and saw the following lines.
* Mounting local filesystems
NTFS signature is missing
Failed to mount /dev/sda1: invalid argument
The device /dev/sda1 doesn't have a valid NTFS.
Maybe you selected the wrong device? Or the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/hda, not /dev/hda1)? Or the other way around?
Then it proceeded as if nothing were wrong:
*Setting clock to hardware clock.
And so forth.
/dev/sda1 is actually an Ubuntu installation. Pardus is on /dev/sda6, and there's a swap. That's all, just three partitions.
Is this a fluke, or something that might become troublesome down the road?
