    Question Booting Local - Root Filesystem from Live CD


    Using Fedora Core 9 x64 w/mass storage card ide

    I am trying to help a friend out , I need to boot the Local Root Filesystem on my Fc9 , so I can access my source code and runs some apps from it.

    From Live CD Shell
    Command: mount /dev/hdc2 /mnt/hdc2 -t sysfs
    this command does work but I don't see my files , all I see is directories fs,fuse ect...

    My Question : How do you do this right , I have copied the entries from fstab and mtab. They just do not work in BT2

    UUID=8a1b253c-dd26-46d0-8d0b-42d64780783d / ext3 defaults 1 1

    /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 / ext3 rw 0 0

    thanks for your time

    you want to boot the backtrack livecd to access your fedora9 installation??

    boot up the livecd. create directory /mnt/blabla. mount the root dir of your fedora9 installation "mount /dev/hdax /mnt/blabla". next mount /dev /sys and proc

    mount -t proc /proc /mnt/hdx/proc
    mount -o bind /dev /mnt/hdx/dev
    mount -o bind /sys /mnt/hdx/sys

    and then chroot in that directory

    chroot /mnt/hdx

    thats it...
