Cannot open true file font Fedora17 entering emergency mode when boots
 
Hi,

New to linux.I had been working on fedora 17. Rebooted yesterday but it gave error: Cannot open true file font, Took me in to emergency mode as root user.

I made these changes:

vi /etc/default/grub

replaced SYSFONT=True with SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16

I am a beginner in linux so don't know how to work on command line but somehow managed to get out of the editor.

When I rebooted, it gave another error:

E325: ATTention.....

And a long message about swap file.......

How can I ever get out of this problem, my work has come to halt.

I have a dual boot system, so when it boots, grub shows me fedora and advanced options for fedora. In the advanced options are the kernel versions options and their recovery modes. I tried to boot through one of the recovery modes as well but all in vain.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can boot from a live CD and try to rescue your system by undoing your changes. This tutorial should give you the idea: http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-res...d-with-knoppix

I did use the cd to recover but it didnt help.
But you know what, I had been saving the image of my linux partition through macrium software on windows 7. I thought it wont work but luckily it did :)

THANKS !!
