    Solved Change single-user read only

    I made a mistake in the rc.conf file and rebooted into single user mode and locked out of multi user mode. It looks like I can open a text editor and delete the line that was a mistake but it's read only. How do I change this to write permission?

    Booting from usb stick

    Hi everyone. I'm a newbie in the *nix world and in command line, but my question is very simple.

    I have a VM that I use for some testing, playing around and other non-critical stuff. Because it’s not important I tend to be quite reckless with it, updating for the heck of it, not checking UPDATING before I do etc. Now, however, I have run into an issue that is throwing me off a bit...
