reiserfs was in the kernel (and supported by other distros) for quite a
while before Red Hat thought it safe to use. Ditto LVM.
I find Knoppix to be a great tool when a system is unbootable, and
it's normally not a good idea (very bad) to run an fsck on a mounted
If you can't fsck a mounted parition there is something seriously wrong
with your software. My computers have been able to do that as far back
as RHL 3.0.3.
It_must_ be mounted ro, and that's why you give the kernel the "ro"
option as here:
summer@Dolphin:~/svn/anaconda$ cat /proc/cmdline
root=/dev/hda3 ro vga=791
If it's true you have to boot something else to do a filesystem check,
for sure there's something seriously amiss.
Thanks for your completely useless feedback.
