I'm pretty new to ubuntu/linux and I guess I messed up my
/etc/fstab file. Ubuntu (12.04) won't boot anymore. I've found some tips on the internet on how to fix this, but I didn't manage to get them working.
What I've tried so far is to reboot and enter recovery mode shell and edit the
/etc/fstab file using
I figured this won't work since the the mounted filesystem is read only. Then I tried
#mount -n -o remount,rw / at the shell in order to remount the filesystem as writable. But if I enter now
#nano /etc/fstab I get the line
bash: /usr/bin/nano: Permission denied. Am I missing something here?
Another option I've tried is to create a bootable USB drive (I don't have a CD drive). This didn't work. I created a bootable USB stick and it boots on other machines, but not on my laptop (yes, I doublechecked the BIOS for the boot-order). Any help would be very very much appreciated.
