  • This does sound like there may be filesystem errors. When this happens, do include the contents of dmesg within your question. – yjwong Dec 26 '13 at 6:17

Press Ctrl + Alt + F1 and login.

Try

sudo mount -o remount,rw /dev/sd? /

To get the sd? you have to run df and the one that mounted at / is the proper one.

That should work.

When done, Ctrl + Alt + F7.

This may not be persistent through reboot. This is most likely temporary.

  • it says sudo: unable to open var/lib/sudo/steven/tty1: read only file system – Steven Wyant Dec 26 '13 at 16:55
