Yesterday
Repair Etc MtabI rebooted my computer and noticed from the msgs as it was shutting down that it had failed in a few tasks (I didnt jot down which these were). When linux began to boot up again I got an error with mtab whenever the start up script tried to mount a partition. X windows didnt start up and i was left with a command line console after a number of errors all having to do with mtab. I have tried to rm /etc/mtab and i get "(input/output) error". I have tried chattr -i /etc/mtab and i get the same input output error. I have run fsck on the other partitions and they came up with a bunch of errors which were corrected and i'm pretty sure the root partition had a bunch of errors that were fixed when fsck check was forced. I'm not sure what to do next to fix my /etc/mtab file. I can provide more detailed descriptions of the errors i get on boot. I'm running a stable 2.4 kernel (mandrake 8.1) with KDE 3.0 on a 1 ghz AMD Athalon. I havent run into any problems like this before now and have been using KDE 3.0 for a month or so now without any problems. I would appreciate any replies (I'm anxious to stop using my win2k partition as soon as possible ) Reply With Quote 07-26-2002,12:40 PM #2 kiyoaki View Profile View Forum Posts Junior Grasshopper Join Date Jul 2002 Posts 2 Good news! I used my Mandrake 8.1 cd and booted into repair mode. From the repair mode I as able to force a fsck on my root partition and it found and repaired the problem. I'm writing this from my favorite browser (Opera) in my favorite OS =).

Fixed it. Copied /etc to tmp, removed /etc, copied it back. Don't yet know why this fixed things. 2.6.16-1.2080_FC5 references to /etc/mtab by any utilities which concern mounting, including usb, removable media, internal disks, "df", etc. fail with "/etc/mtab input/output error". proc/mounts is visible and populated.
