Re: HELP!!! - Problems with my root partition
Two possibilities spring to mind.
1. You've managed to mount the root filesystem read-only. As root, do
and see what error message you get. RTFM mount(8) to see how to
remount it read-write, and check /etc/fstab to see how it mounts it at
2. You've broken the permissions on every file on the filesystem
somehow. You should be able to see this just with `ls -l'. This
strikes me as unlikely, however l-)
