filesystem maintenance crash


Hello,
I have filesystem maintenance crash on RedHat EL4
I have accidentally moved some Subversion checked folder from /root to my home folder... Now I can't boot up my system normally.
The boot always comes to the maintenance mode, but I can't remove troublesome directory anymore, even as "root" - have "read only filesystem" error. Can someone suggest how to fix this problem ? I'd really appreciate
that - have months worth of development on that system.
Thanks a lot

First thing I'd try would be to boot from CD or DVD, into single-user or rescue-mode. Mount your file systems there, and try to move things around accordingly. However, your problem description is very vague...Subversion shouldn't break the OS....

The next thing I'd try is really the first thing you should do: CONTACT REDHAT FOR SUPPORT. If this is a critical server, and you're having a production issue, community-support can be much slower. You're paying for support with RedHat, so I'd use it.

I'm inclined to agree - you wouldn't think something like that should break the boot - /home under the root ?.
In maintanance mode you will be in single user; you should be able to remount the root as rw. Try something like this
Code:
mount -o remount,rw /
