Hi, you wonderful people!
I think I must have done something stupid again.
Just after installed GParted, I launched it and then, without using it, absent-mindedly shut down the computer without first quitting.
Now I get this cryptic error message on a black screen:
“error symbol ‘grub_debug_malloc’ not found.
Entering rescue mode…
grub rescue> _”
If any of you kind souls have advice on how to fix it, I shall be eternally grateful.
/dev/sda2/chroot does not exist. /dev/sda2 is a file, not a directory. More precisely, /dev/sda2 is a device special file representing a block device, in this case being the second partition on an SATA-connected storage medium.
One always mounts a block device on a directory — or “folder”, in Microsoft and Apple speak. And then this directory is what you chroot into.
