mounting partitions in single user mode
I'm trying to do an exercise from Jang's RHCE prep book. On page 178 he has the reader rename the inittab file, reboot, and troubleshoot from single user mode.
When I do this, I'm unable to mount directories. The mount command indicates that /var is mounted. But when I go to the directory, there is nothing in it. It is in a logical volume. When I try to mount it, I get an error message that the device /dev/mapper/VolGroup01-LogVol01 does not exist. And I don't see any volume groups in the /dev directory. Similarly, the /home directory is showing as mounted, but there are no files or directories there.
So . . . what do I need to do in order to mount logical volumes in single user mode?
