well my problem:
i kind of wanted to give userquota to a user and ended up messing up /home label name etc in /etc/fstab
which has resulted in Ctrl + D error at bootup.
i tried editing fstab entries but it says no permission or similar.
how to remove this problem ? plz help
PS: anyother then linux rescue dvd method?
When the root user try to make any Permanent entry in fstab file & by mistake changes the path location of mounted file systems, it gives error while rebooting the system.
Control D Error:-
Steps to Rectify it:-....
1) Enter the bootable Cd/DvD of Rhel.
(The version you are using)
2) Read the control D error carefully.
3) Give the root password.
4) You will go to single usermod.
5) Try to access /etc/fstab file.
6) Will not allow you as will be in read only mode.
7) Enter this command:-
mount -o remount,rw /
(Will give read/write permission to /)
8) Will give u read/write permission to all
the files in /
9)Then again enter into /etc/fstab & rectify ur error.(vim /etc/fstab)
10)Give command reboot or init 5(As per ur wish)
