Re: Mounting filesystems in recovery shell of boot disk

When you say recovery shell, do you mean from single user mode?

Re: Mounting filesystems in recovery shell of boot disk

A recovery shell is *not* the same as single user mode. In teh recovery shell, you are povided with a minimal set of OS commands (in RAM) and an operating environment. If you want to repair/recover files from your standard boot disk you must:

exit the menus to a recovery shell
run "chroot_lvmdisk"
cd /ROOT ; chroot /ROOT /sbin/sh
activate your root VG
mount filesystems as desired.
