FC3 fschk boot problem

Oh great guru's please help this newbie!!

I did a yum update kernel on my Fedora Core 3 box, and it ran a kernel update. The reason I did that was to see if the new kernel would have the reboot issues fixed.

During reboot it drops to maintenance mode. The tech at Serverpronto says it is mounting drives BEFORE the fschk.

That is a bad thing! Anyone know how I can reverse that order? I am new, so I need it spelled out for me.

thanks for all you do.

This could be an indicator of other problems, but I would start by checking the file /etc/grub/grub.conf. On the kernel line make sure it has ro after the kernel file. This starts off things read only. Here is an example from my grub.conf.
title Fedora Core (2.6.19-1.2911.fc6)
        root (hd0,2)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.19-1.2911.fc6 ro root=LABEL=/ quiet
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.19-1.2911.fc6.img
Notice the ro after /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.19-1.2911.fc6 on the kernel line. If ro is already there do you experience any problems during shutdown?

Thanks Bill.

The ro was present. I switched it back one kernel by changing the default from 0 to 1. That seemed to restart it.




boot, fedora, fsck
