My suse doesn’t start anymore. I want to run the repair cd but I don’t know the login & passwords that I should be using.
I have tried my usual logins & also tried the root login that I created with no luck.
Do you know what repair login I should be using?
I really don’t want to do a full install again…help!
(I can blame all this on my 4 year old boy Vincent, he just flicks the switch on the powerpoint to turn it off and I think this has been the source of my problem)
With repair CD do you mean ?
The repair option on the Install or Live media from opensuse did not ask for a password , but is a long time ago that I use it.
A hard shutdown when it only happens once did not do too much harm
Repair install cd.
here is what is says;
/dev/disk/b-id/scsi-sata …then displays a %
"the root file system is currently read only. To remount it read - write to:
bash# mount -n -o remount, rw/
I have done this command but don’t know the login and password…it must be something different to the root and or usual login.
Do you have an idea as to what I should do??
I need to think of a punishment for my kid too so if you have any ideas let me know. Perhaps the naughty chair again!
IMHO you do not need to enter ‘root’ and the root password upon a seriously failed fschk. I’ve faced such a problem, because a failed sax2 session hard-crashed my Pentium I computer. It is also advisable to manually fschk the offending partition.
Here is a site, fschk , that can help you somewhat further, because my fschk problem came from 2000 and not later anymore.
