Q. When I login in Single User Mode I can not change things.
I am told the filesystems are mounted as read-only.
How can I fix this?
A. Remount the filesystem. To remount the root filesystem:
mount -u -o rw /
The man page says:
The -u flag indicates that the status of an already mounted file system should be changed.
-o rw just requests the read-write option.
If you get an error about fsck needing to be run, well run it:
Then try to mount again.
