What directory where you trying to write to?

How far does it get at boot up?


are you sure that's right? you have eight SCSI controllers?

It shouldn't take all night to copy a CD locally.

I am more than sure that's right disk. Yeah it has lot of SCSI controllers. It's a hp 9000 A class server.

I dont know how long it took. I was waiting about an hour after I ran that command. Then I went home. In th morning it was showing I/O error.

If I had a messed up root configuration I would attempt to boot from the installation media and see what the damage was, attempt to make a backup of my important data on a remote machine then rebuild the machine from scratch.

I don't think you can boot into single-user mode because the system panics over the root file system.
