RootFS is currently Read Only (R/O) mounted. Everything is blocked.

Post by LeVraiRoiDHyrule »

Hi,

I'm new to dietpi. I have a problem that I don't understand, that is blocking my entire pi.

I was managing my external drives with Dietpi's Drive Manager, rebooted, and now I've got this :

Not a single software on my pi works now.
It tells me to run the drive manager, but I don't know what to do next :

I searched on the forums about the issue, found someone who sent a fix :
https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/issu ... -624525544
Ok, but how do I get my PartUUID ? I don't know how to apply the solution.

Here is my fstab file, I don't know how to manage it but as I understood it manages drives and partition, I guess is could help.

Everything is now blocked. How can I fix this ? Any help is welcome. If you need more details about something, you can ask. I'm new and don't know yet what would be needed to fix the issue. Have a good day

@LeVraiRoiDHyrule
do you transferred your rootFS to an external device or is it still located on your SD card.

I second the link to https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/issues/3511

also backup your fstab before using the drive manager.

to backup cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.bak
to restore cp /etc/fstab.bak /etc/fstab

don't forget to make rootFS writable before ;)

Code: Select all

mount -o remount,rw /
