looks like you have some fat-formatted partitions in your fstab (/media). IMHO FreeBSD only starts if all partitions are marked clean. Through the hard reboot the partitions are not marked as "clean", because the "marking" is done at the unmount of the fs. So FreeBSD wants to check the fs, but does not find the program "fsck_msdos" to check the msdos partition. So it drops you into single-user-mode. > > Now.. when I go into single user mode, no command seems to work > besides cd and ls.

You can also try to remove the /media partition from your fstab. Maybe the obligatorily fs-checks of the other partitions have no problems. Booting from a freebsd-installation-cd and backup your data for a reinstall is another possiblity. > _______________________________________________ > firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to > "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" -- florian meister EMAIL: [EMAIL PROTECTED] TELEPHONE: +43 5572 501 134 FAX: +43 5572 501 97134 ADDRESS: gutenbergstrasse 1 6858 schwarzach vorarlberg austria WWW: www.medienhaus.at o If practice makes perfect, and nobody's perfect, why practice? o The solution of this problem is trival and is left as an exercise for the reader. o Recursive,adj.; see recursive. _______________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
