    Boot failure in fedora 15 after removing unused LVM volume


    So what happened is i had a small encrypted lvm volume that i no longer need because I have bought an external HDD and used truecrypt on in. So after I transfer all the files off of the encrypted partition, I restart and drop into single user mode and remove the unneeded volume. When i attempt to restart, instead of going to the login screen, when the boot progress bar is full, it says "welcome to emergency mode: enter root password for maintenance or press control D for normal mode" or something along those lines. I tired control+D, but that just brought me right back to the emerengy mode screen. I put in my root password and tried startx, but then x gave me this error: "can not start D-bus, can you call q-dbus?". After that i tried both "service dbus start" and "dbus-launch", both of which failed. Is there any quick remedy to this situation, or do i have to reinstall? Thanks in advance.

    Is there still an entry in /etc/fsab that refers to the volume you've removed? If so, you may want to remove it and try booting again.

    There is no /etc/fsab

    Welcome!

    I think perhaps there was a typo...
    Try looking for /etc/fstab, and follow the above suggestion.
