RE: redhat-list Digest, Vol 55, Issue 24

Hi Mark , 
Thanks for the reply. I tried following 
Boot in Linux rescue mode. 
Skip when asked to mount filesystem. 
Fdisk -l 
This gives me /dev/sda1 as boot 
and /dev/sda2 as linux LVM
Mkdir /mnt
Mount /dev/sda2 -o rw /mnt

Error:Mounting /dev/sda2 on /mnt failed, no such file or directory 

Any thoughts???

When you boot off the rescue disk, it creates a virtual root filesystem,
it's running completely from memory. So what you need to do is this: if
no /mnt, make one. Then mount /dev/sda2 ->read/write - make *sure* it's
because I think the default is ro. Then you can rename fstab, and you
should be
good to go.
