Subject: [gentoo-user] init 1, root device is busy :(
Date: Sat, 19 Apr 2008 19:18:38
1 Hello Gentoo users,
3 I just can't fsck my root device because my Gentoo system don't allow me
4 to remount it as readonly (mount -o ro,remount /dev/hda1). A rw-mounted
5 device is unsafe to be fsck -ed. (AFAIK).
7 When I go to tty1, login as root, do these:
9 killall kdm, then init 1. It goes to runlevel 1 (maintenance level). But
10 I don't have to type my root password in the end (on other distros I had
11 to). I can unmount my /boot and /home partitions but I just can't
12 remount my root device to be readonly. (Linux says it is busy.) What
13 should I do with this?
15 1.) Should I edit my Grub menu.lst to make a new entry with "single ro"
16 kernel parameteres?
17 2.) Of course I can fsck from (for example) a LiveCD (like Gentoo
18 minimal cd), but at the present I don't have any of these.
19 3.) Other solution?
21 Thanks in advance!
23 pm.: I just love my Gentoo system :)
