hi, ive almost got my system how i want it, but i changed something in fstab now lots of stuff are broken because filesystem is read only
its ubuntu server and is console only but i do use winscp to do a lot of stuff to it.(including messing it up)
i was trying to get quota to work properly and shifted the commands from the /dev that i thought was the root partition but i think is actually the boot partition. so when i re-entered it into this /dev, i missed out a parameter and now im stuck.
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'vol_id --uuid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# / was on /dev/mapper/server-root during installation

see the 0 on the end of this jqfmt=vfsv0 ^
that isnt present on the ext3 filesystem (where i moved it to)
look above st the entry : /dev/mapper/server-root during installation
the last line commented out is where i guessed the root partition was, but is probably boot.
why are the devices only a load of numbers??
i think i need a proper /dev/ name like /dev/sdb3 or something, to mount it properly.
hope this all makes sense, i need to delete the stuff i added and all should be well apart from quota.
