problem during boot

Im trying to boot but im getting the following message

one or more of the mounts listed in /etc/fstab cannot yet be mounted (esc for recovery shell)

/: waiting for /dev/disk/by-uuid/730271ec-doc3-4e7a-82c5-57c74690dc19
/tmp: waiting for (null)
swap : waiting for uuid = a923825d-bf2a-4eeb-blc2-a8d41828f561

this happened after running an update, anyone know whats caused this and how I can rescue my system?

If you have the installation DVD, you can boot off of that and proceed to repair the installed system but if you have the live CD only, it’s a bit more complicated. Which one do you have?

ive got the dvd. will it be an automatic repair?

Auto will try to repair everything. No need to repair everything – try the file system only.

ok thanks for your help :slight_smile:
