I'm on Ubuntu 14.04.
I pasted something incorrect (from a tutorial) into my /etc/fstab file. As a result, the root file system will not mount when the machine boots up.
I know what needs to be fixed in /etc/fstab, but I cannot save the file (or any file) because the system boots as read only.
As root, I tried:
mount -o remount,rw /
to no avail. The error message cited the section of bad options that I pasted into /etc/fstab.
I read some stuff about booting into single user mode by adding 'single' to the end of the kernel parameter. I can't seem to find the kernel parameter. On the grub menu, I highlight Ubuntu and press 'e' which brings up a file with some sort of configuration, but there is no 'kernel' parameter to be found.
I'm relatively new to linux. Can anyone help me figure out a way to fix my /etc/fstab file so that Ubuntu will boot normally?
