    [SOLVED] Can't open linux


    I am using FreeBSD. I added some wrong lines in rc.conf. When I reboot:
    Loading configuration files.
    /etc/rc.conf: 33: Syntax error: Unterminated quoted string
    Enter full pathname of shell or ENTURN for /bin/sh:

    After press ENTER, I am tring to use vi command to change the file
    ex/vi: Error: /var/emp/vi.recover: Read-only file system
    ex/vi: Modifications not recoverable if the session fails
    ex/vi: Error: rc.conf: Read-only file system
    ex/vi: Error: Unable to create temporary file: read-only file system

    Same problem occurs when starting in safe mode.

    Can Any one help me about this?

    Thank you .

    Thanks for digerati.

    My question has been solved.
    FreeBSD use a different remount command:
    # mount -o rw /dev/ad0s1a /
