All my filesystems have been changed to READ-ONLY and I cannot do anything once
I boot into Linux. Does anybody know how to change the filesystems back to their
normal state ?? Any help greatly appreciated.
this happened to me a few times. once when i repartitioned and didn't
make the new filesystem so the inodes where incorrect. to fix that i
booted with floppy boot and root disks and ran the setup and formatted
the new partitions from there.
the other times it went read-only was because of time. it apparently
makes the kernel check the inodes on boot every once in a while.
sorry i can't help further...
If you can't do that, try this command:
mount -nt ext2 /dev/hda7 / -o remount
This is my machine's root partition, adjust for your machine!
Entropy isn't what it used to be.
I down loaded from sunsite all the modules - color144, bare and the
a1-a4 set. Installed on my PC (P90, 1GB IDE, 200MB Linux partition).
Upon running "setup", received warnings "missing package" for every
a1-a4 disk. (Installed "a" from hard drive). Installation completed.
Linux boot rel 1.1.59. I receive messages such as
/etc/rc.d/rc.S: /sbin/update: no such file or directory
and messages "read-only fiel system".
I have tried to search everywhere (news groups, HOWTO's, FAQ's, README)
and found only couple of postings with similar problems but no responses.
I compared my downloaded file to the sunsite - I have everything.
Appriciate any help.
All results will be summarized.
