Trying to recover lost root password -- cannot mount /dev/sda1
Somehow, the root account got corrupted to the point where any type of trying to log in with it doesn't work.
So, I'm using a live CD to boot the device.
from fdisk -l, it says /dev/sda1 is the boot device
I create a temp directory and when I try to mount /dev/sda1, I get a message saying it's busy.
mount | grep -i sda1 yields nothing!
So I run fsck against /dev/sda1 thinking it's corrupt or something. No luck; same message -- it's busy.
When I run df -h, I get this:
Is that interfering with mounting /dev/sda1? Or is something else?
