read only file system


hi all,

while starting linux (suse 8.2) i get the message "read-only file system" (actually pretty often). when i try to log in as root (or any other user), i get the message "modprobe:modprobe:Canīt locate module char-major-180".

before all this i have fiddled with smb.conf, inetd.conf and made a startsmb (to start smbd and nmbd)

at the moment i am able to login with linux single and managed to delete that startsmb, i changed inetd.conf and smb.conf to their originals back (i think).

when i first had those troubles logging in i had noticed that the CPU-fan had not rotated anymore and so i have exchanged the CPU. hardware-wise it seems to work again.

can anybody help?

greetings from hoher flaming,
burkie

PS: great spell checker! (this goes to the folks at linuxquestions.org)

Modprobe is a hardware tool... I have no idea what the problem is, what cpu did you have in and what cpu do you have in at the moment? aka celeron and now maybe a p4?

the old one was a AMD K6-2 max 300 Mhz, the new CPU is a AMD K6-2 max 333 Mhz.

in my initial mail i forgot to say that i managed with a debian (started from CD-ROM; knoppix) to change and delete those *.conf files

greetings,
burkie
