stale nfs handle on root partition

To show how bad is the crisis - i had to write the answer to the register question of these forums *by hand* on my phone to post this.

yesterday my computer stopped browsing the internet, and after talking with NetworkManager i found that there is a stale nfs handle on resolv.conf.
I tried fsck on startup but got nothing.
e2fsck reply was "The superblock could not be read" and to try running e2fsck -b 8193.
I ran it and got the same answer.
I tried to run in in single user mode and got the same answer plus "bad magic number"
So i tried running mkfs -n /dev/sda3(root)but can't because the partition is mounted.
any ideas?
I can't post detailed logs because my computer has no internet and I can't copy paste

Re: stale nfs handle on root partition

What are you using for a domain name server in /etc/resolv.conf?
You can try changing it to use google's dns. 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4

Re: stale nfs handle on root partition

There's no point saying it, you have to write it in a post on the forums.
resolv.conf is a text file on the local filesystem. A stale nfs handle won't stop you from editing that file.
I'm guessing you might have a setup that deviates from the norm, it's hard to know for sure as you have provided so little info.
Hope you eventually sort it out.
