I am running Redhat 9 with kernel 2.4.20-20.9. I am getting the
following errors when trying to mount an LVM snapshot:
EXT3-fs: INFO: recovery required on readonly filesystem.
EXT3-fs: write access unavailable, cannot proceed.
I saw a thread on redhat.com that said a kernel patch is needed. My
BS. You are trying to mount a non-clean filesystem on a read-only
LV. I don't know why your LV is read-only. You should find out why
it is, make it writable, and run fsck on it. After that, you should
be able to mount it.
