Trouble bootine SuSE 8.2 with ReiserFS in Read/Write mode
Hey everyone - I'm using Grub to boot SuSE 8.2 and I can't for the life of me figure this out. I'm getting a bunch of weird ReiserFs / read-only messages at boot, and during the latter parts of the process, the init scripts don't run because the "/" mount is read-only. This has been working perfectly for about a year and all of a sudden just quit on me.
My setup is as follows...
/dev/hda1 - ext3 (boot)
/dev/hda2 - Fat32 (WinXP)
/dev/hda3 - ext3 (Mandrake)
/dev/hda4 - extended partition
/dev/hda5 - swap
/dev/hda6 - reiserfs (SuSE)
I've noticed that when my computer boots up, Grub loads but it's coming from /dev/hda6 as the /boot/grub/menu.lst file on there correctly lists what I see in the grub menu. /dev/hda1 has a completely different menu.
I've heard things about some journal entries not being committed, or the system didn't shut down right, or something like that, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to get the darn thing to boot correctly in r/w mode.
However, when I boot from my SuSE CD in rescue mode, I can mount /dev/hda6 into /mnt/hda6 in RW mode!! I have full control of the volume when I'm in SuSE's rescue mode, but when booting, I'm completely lost!
I've futzed around with the reiserfsck utility, and it runs fine saying everything's good and nothing's bad.
What else can I do?
Any help is absolutely greatly appreciated!!
Thanks in advance,
