/etc/fstab


Hi all

Did some mistake while editing /etc/fstab. I added "realtime.acl"
Now not able to boot the system. If i enter Manual recovery mode and try to edit /etc/fstab it says READONLY filesystem. I googled out and found below command
mount -o remount,rw /
It is not working for me.
It says Unrecognized mount option "realtime.acl.errors=remount-ro". I edited that line by mistake. How do i remove it??

Thanks for help in advance
-Nakul
