    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.

    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 !!
