    Read Only Error at boot II


    Here is the error i get

    Fsck failed.Please repair manually and reboot .The root filesystem is currently mounted read-only

    To mount it read-write do:

    bash#mount -n -o remount,rw/

    Attention:Only Ctrl D will reboot the system in this maintence mode.Shutdown or reboot will not work.

    Give Root password for login:

    I formated the external drive from ext3 to reiserf

    How do you unmount when finished it because I am running a Dell Inspiron 2650 Laptop

    and mounted hda5 to its default

    also what do the * mean in the fstab

    /dev/hda7 / reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 1
    /dev/hda2 /windows/C ntfs ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8 0 0
    /dev/hda6 swap swap pri=42 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
    /dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder subfs fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=ut f8 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /media/floppy subfs fs=floppyfss,procuid,nodev,nosuid,sync 0 0
    #/dev/hda5 /mount/dev/hda5/mnt/1GB_native reiserfs auto,acl,user_xattr 1 2
    /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom subfs fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=ut f8 0 0
    #/dev/sda1 /media/usb-storage-Y3KQ3YTE:0:0:0p1 ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 2
    /dev/sda1 /media/usb-storage-Y3KQ3YTE:0:0:0p1 reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2
    /dev/hda5 /mount/dev/hda5/mnt/1GB_native reiserfs defaults 1 2

    Also I can edit the fstab with this

    root@ttyp1[knoppix]# mount /dev/hda7
    root@ttyp1[knoppix]# kwrite /mnt/hda7/etc/fstab

    also before this happened again it wouldn't allow me to add things to it
    so i'll probably use this

    su
    rootpass
    chmod 777

    and what would be the mount point on an this drive
    the name of this partition works fine

    #/dev/hda5 /mount/dev/hda5/mnt/1GB_native reiserfs auto,acl,user_xattr 1 2

    Also should I get rid of some of these lines

    #/dev/hda5 /mount/dev/hda5/mnt/1GB_native reiserfs auto,acl,user_xattr 1 2
    /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom subfs fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=ut f8 0 0
    #/dev/sda1 /media/usb-storage-Y3KQ3YTE:0:0:0p1 ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 2
    /dev/sda1 /media/usb-storage-Y3KQ3YTE:0:0:0p1 reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2
    /dev/hda5 /mount/dev/hda5/mnt/1GB_native reiserfs defaults 1 2

    These two both worked early before I formated it from ext3 to reiserfs so should these added in the fstab or be deleted
    #/dev/hda5 /mount/dev/hda5/mnt/1GB_native reiserfs auto,acl,user_xattr 1 2
    #/dev/sda1 /media/usb-storage-Y3KQ3YTE:0:0:0p1 ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 2

    I changed renamed to reiserfs so should I replace this one with the one above.

    #/dev/sda1 /media/usb-storage-Y3KQ3YTE:0:0:0p1 reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2

    the '#' at the beginning of the line makes the whole of that line a comment so that according to the mount command (essentially) that line in the fstab is non-existent.

    to unmount stuff use the
    Code:
    umount
    command

    Though the shutdown process should unmount any mounted filesystems for you.

    Personally i would use these lines:

    /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom subfs fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
    dependin on fs on the usb stick choose relevant one.
    Code:
    #/dev/sda1 /media/usb-storage-Y3KQ3YTE:0:0:0p1 ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 2 
    /dev/sda1 /media/usb-storage-Y3KQ3YTE:0:0:0p1 reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2
