first of all .. what the hell is cron besides a timing deamon of some kind?
Yesterday, when i logged into my RH7.0 box with any user other than root, i would get a /etc/null error. something about not having permissions.
Today.. when i logged in.. i still got that error. Then when i logged in as root, I had three emails.. telling me about /etc/null permission errors in cron.daily, cron.monthly and cron.weekly (i think it was monthly.. could have been hourly).
I restarted to see if it would fix the problem. and I get
on just about everything
it then says
***An error occured during the file system check
***Dropping you to a shell the system will reboot
***when you leave the shell
Give root password for maintenence
(or type CONTROL-D fo normal startup)
typing CTRL-D it says the following:
mounting file systems
mount: no such partition found
your computer will reboot
or someting to that affect
what can i do?
