sniff - It doesn't know me anymore..



I did some things and then rebooted

It went through the module/application stage of the reboot very quickly
(too quickly) and I now have

  Fedore Core release Rawhide (Rawhide)
  Kernel 2.6.8-1.610smp on an i686

  (none) login:

I typed in all of the usual suspects (root, user1, ..), but none are known.
Even when I type in 'none', it doesn't know him either.

What did I do?

I was a bit annoyed that it was wanting me to do an 'e2fsck'. A couple of
days ago, I was able to 'umount /boot' and do '/sbin/e2fsck -p /dev/sda1'
and similar on all of the partitions except '/'. Doing 'umount /' was not
successful (busy, busy) and I could not do e2fsck without umounting that
partition.

However, there was a lazy umount option 'umount -l /'

This completed fine - no busy busy complaints.

But, when I went to do '/sbin/e2fsck -p /dev/sda2' on the '/' partition -
it still said it was mounted and that terrible things would happen if I
continued.

Can you imagine that? I already had 'umount'ed it, lazy whatever. So I went
ahead and did the e2fsck.

And, terrible things did happen.

I really did need to download the latest FC2 test release iso disks - and
do the i2o driver installs...
