read only filesystem ONLY


There is some problem with my Fedora Core 2. It doesn't boot properly and the main problem is it boots only as read only filesystem.

I asked also on fedora forum but I still didn't get any helpfull answer. You can read my post here

Can anyone help me?

thanks

Have you checked your fstab to make sure your not mounting it read-only? ie with the ro option.

Also check your drive with "hdparm -r /dev/hda", say, to see if the drive accepts writes.

I'm thinking you messed up the initrd.img for your fedora kernel or overwrote your fedora kernel altogether or something -- or messed up it's grub entry.
you just have to fix the fedora kernel -- and from now on be carefull with the various names of things in /boot partition

hdparm doesn't say much

/dev/hda:
readonly = 0 (off)

my fstab:
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
LABEL=/home /home ext3 defaults 1 2
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
