I'm having a bit of trouble with Fedora 15 in that it's only booting in emergency mode. It's running on VirtualBox and was a new install and has no files/data/applications on it other than the software updates installed after installation. I could just delete the VM and start again, but would really like to know what's went wrong and how to fix it as i'm still learning Linux as I go along!
Anyway, I ran 'blkid' and it gives me the following info:
/dev/sda1: LABEL="_Fedora-15-1686-" UUID="9a1c6ead-9503-4480-9949-8aac3df4c05d" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sda2: UUID="e85793c5-1c5b-426f-b6b8-ec0e2cf27974" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sda3: UUID="b73650d8-f47b-42ac-b3ca-58dd75ff4a63" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sda5: UUID="9e9c01df-3859-401f-b83b-c4985e6895d4" TYPE="swap"
I then looked at /etc/fstab and it gives me the following info:
UUID=9a1c6ead-9503-4480-9949-8aac3df4c05d /boot ext4 defaults 1 1
UUID=9e9c01df-3859-401f-b83b-c4985e6895d4 swap swap defaults 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
testing /mnt/testing testing defaults 0 0
If I look in fdisk and view the partition table, I see the following:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 2048 20482047 10240000 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 20482048 28647047 4096000 83 Linux
/dev/sda3 28674048 31746047 1536000 83 Linux
/dev/sda4 31746048 41943039 5098496 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 31750144 34207743 1228800 82 Linux swap / Solaris
Now, I've looked in these and I personally can't see anything that might be causing this. Now, as I am a n00b really, I'm probably not even looking at the right thing! All I did was install, and then run the software updates and a day later, it won't boot!
Anyone any ideas on what's causing this ?
