    Recovery Console always read-only mode

    I'm currently running Ubuntu 11.10.

    I recently needed to use the recovery console to run some commands, but for some reason my recovery console is in read-only mode.

    How can I remove read-only / make it writable?

    You may re-mount "/" read-write by typing the code below in recovery mode:

    Code:
    # mount -o rw,remount /
    You may want to read the man pages for further information (http://linux.die.net/man/8/mount)

    You can always press Ctrl + Alt + F1 , login using your credentials and execute the commands you need to

    The commands I need to execute have to run before ubuntu boots, so this would not work, in my case.
