Edit a file in single-user mode
Please!!, it's very important!!
I tried to made available the quota for the users; i'm using a Linux that it's has been installed by another people and i don't know exactly how he did configured the machine.
I thought : "why don't just copy the /etc/fstab file from another server to make available the quota?" because there's a line like this:
/dev/hda8 /home ext3 usrquota
in another account that i have like user (no root)
I made a reboot and ooppss!!!, says:
fsck invalid device /dev/hda8
try e2fsck -b 8193 device to fix the problem
Enter in single mode user
root's password :
but, when i'll trying to do
e2fsck -f -b 8193 /dev/hda8
The computer indicates that is not an available device!!!
I'm just only trying to edit the /etc/fstab and delete these line, but the system indicates that it's just a read-only.
I've tried with chmod +ugo rwx fstab and still indicates me that i cant because its a read only mode
What can i do???
When the boot process is interrupted with an error like this and you are dumped into single user mode, your root partition is mounted read-only. You should do this:
mount -n -o remount,rw /
This will remount root as read-write and you should be able to edit the fstab. After you finish, do a control-d to reboot.
Thank's !!!!, :)
You save my life!!! :)
