[SOLVED]Boot loop after chmod.

Postby Guid00B » Sat Feb 25, 2017 6:31 am

Hello,
As I was trying to set up a nfs share with my Synology DiskStation as explained here I ran a chmod that seems to have broken my system

Code: Select all

sudo chmod 0666 /mnt/DiskStationLQE


DiskStationLQE is the mount point I made previously when following the howto. As it didn't work at once (the nfs were available with the go>network menu, but I didn't succeed at having them available automatically with autofs.

So I boot on recovery as root, changed back the autofs config file (/etc/auto.master back to initial, removed the auto.nfs and auto.auth I had made) but I can remove /mnt/DiskStationLQE I created at step one of the howto.

Code: Select all

sudo rm /mnt/DiskStationLQE
gives me a no such file or directory

I can start in recovery as root or using a install cd.

Can you help me recovering my system ?

Thanks.

I managed to remove the /mnt/DiskStationLQE. I realized I had forgotten the -r option with my rm command.
But no boot so far, so I broke something else. I'd need to run something like fsck, but I can't when I boot in recovery.
Never been there before, so help appreciated.
