but when running the rescue system from the suse linux cd i get 2 errors
also can you help me with this since i posted it at linuxforums.org and the person isn't responding his name is dylunio
OK, login as root at the maintence screen, and then Code:
it will spit out your fstab, check the line for your root filesystem, after the mountpoint ( / ) there may be a ro, you must change that to a rw, to do this, Code:
press i and edit the ro into a rw, and then press Esc, and then type :w! then, :q and restart the computer, it should now be fixed,
Then he says
Ok, letts check your /etc/boot/menu.lst, there will be a few lines like this: Quote:
kernel (hd0,6)/boot/vmlinuz ro root=/dev/hda7 vga=0x31a splash=silent desktop resume=/dev/hda1 showopts
You need to change that ro (if you have it) into rw, do that in the same way as I said to do with your /etc/fstab.
why am i supposed to me helping out some guy on another site? let's stick to our own answers.... you've still not said what errors fsck is giving you. you don't want to mount that partition read-write if it's failing the fs checks.
