Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 58380
no way in "linux rescue" mode to mount a filesystem read-only
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:39:01 EDT
The "mount" program included in "linux rescue" mode apparently does not allow a
filesystem to be mounted read-only. This is rather unfortunate, because, e.g.,
if you know that your root filesystem is hosed, you may need to mount it
read-only to get at the programs in it so that you can complete the rescue.
Same as 58379 :)
Made it so that you have the chance to select mounting as read-only when first
mounting filesystems in rescue mode. Also, the switch to busybox mount lets you
use read-only mount from the command-line
Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
