I am using Frenzy1 (based on FreeBSD6.1) installed on the hard disk, every so and so the system crashes, mainly when I play with it tweaking it, etc... I don't mind the crash but then when it reboots I can not get FreeBSD to start again, it freezes rebooting in the middle and I get the message:
/ was not properly dismounted
R/W mount of / denied. Filesystem is not clean
And thats it, the only way around it is reinstalling.
Any clue about what I can do or what provoques that message so I may not do it again?
Notice that I have no command prompt because the computer freezes in the middle of the boot and does not give me a change to use the command for anyting, I tried booting in single and safe mode but the same thing happens.
Do a `cat /etc/fstab` and find what drive mounts to "/".
Boot into single user mode, and run:
fsck -p /dev/ad0
(replace ad0 with the drive you found in the fstab)
