One of our servers (running Ubuntu 12.04) recently crashed during a power outage, and MySQL refused to start back up. After a lot of trial and error, I decided to completely reinstall it. Since I wasn't able to start any of the services, I couldn't do a dump, and there were no backups before that. I only have a copy of /var/lib/mysql.
Some databases have .MYD and .MYI files for all tables in the directory, so I was able to restore them fine by just copying the files. However, others only have the .frm files, and db.opt. There are no other files. I tried to stop the server, copy ibdata1 and ib_logfile1 and 2 from the backup directory and start it up again, but that always makes it crash again until I overwrite them with the fresh files.
- Databases all show up with
- Tables all show up with
show tables, but they're not listed in information_schema.TABLES.
There is some important data in the tables that aren't being recognized, and I'm really at a loss now. Is there any way to restore them?
Edit: The error log says this:

Unfortunately, restarting the OS did not solve the problem, and by that time MySQL was already not starting up anymore.
