How to boot on Fedora-16 in rescue mode?

+2 votes
93 views

I followed the official documentation to try to boot in "rescue" mode and then when booting from the live CD I pressed "tab" key, deleted all the command line and then put "linux rescue".

However, fedora always boot "normally"!! I found no /mnt/ sysimage

When You have systemd init daemon, You should use syntax as

linux ... systemd.unit=rescue.target

(see 'man systemd.target')

Or, SYSV4 init/upstart option are stil functioning, simply to linux kernel cmdline append 'single', 's', '1'

But You perhaps will find that systemd is almost unusable in rescue mode (in 'normal' multiuser/graphical mode it is only slightly better) when starting from installed system. It is better boot from CD/DVD/USB stick, Fedora or eg. System Rescue CD etc.

I don't think that works from live cd, only from DVD and netinst, because this isn't a systemd mode, it's an anaconda feature. It's anaconda that uses it's ninja storage knowledge to find and put together a system, and mount it all correctly with the various faux file systems at /mnt/sysimage.

Long ago I knew a way to get the boot process to require a keystroke at each step. This was important when you were trying to read the screen to figure out what is happening, typically wrong.

Can someone point me to how to do this on fedora?

I have a machine with a dual-boot setup with Windows 7 Pro and Fedora 20. I wonder if it is possible these days to run the Win7 installation in a virtual machine using the raw disk and still be able to boot it on the bare metal when necessary.

What is the best VM tool for doing this these days?

I am used to traditional update-rc.d et all.

Now I wonder how to add a a script that used to called by init.d (with start/sop ..) to the new "service start xx" regime.

All the tutorials I found talk about how to use update-rc.d..

I installed the NUT monitor from the Ubunut Software Center. The Ubuntu Software Center lists version 2.6.4-2.3ubuntu2 but when I look at the NUT Monitor ABOUT the program has version 1.3!

I am replacing an old computer running OS/2 as a file and print server for my home LAN with a new computer running Ubuntu. I moved the UPS serial connection from the old computer to the new one but am having problems getting UPS logging to work. When I boot the computer UPSLOG starts but is not finding the UPS so the log is full of useless data. How do I find which file starts the UPSLOG?

As a side problem it appears that the UPSLOG does not operate as the documentation describes. I added a file for the logrotate program which does rotate the log but other than that does not appear to work. When the logrotate program runs the logger stops when it gets the "kill -HUP" signal instead of continuing with the new log file.

I have read the readme file but there is not much about installation. I have looked at some documentation on the internet trying to get this installed but the documentation does not match the configuration files I have on my system. Anyone know where I can find documentation that matches the version I have?
