Description Dead Schorsch 2004-07-08 02:02:08 UTC
I have ext3 on all of my filesystems. Still - since this is an often bootet laptop - running file systems check periodically is enabled and properly reported by checkroot.

But - one mount _before_ a file system check is actually run, the filesystems are mounted read-only, causing the system to fail on almost every task. 

One reboot later, fsck is run and everything is okay again, until mount 24 of 25 arrives again.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot
2. reboot

Actual Results:  
1) fs mounted read-only
2) fs checked, mounted rw

Expected Results:  
do not mount fs read-only unless needed.

I am not sure, but I think I have either the same or a very similar problem.  I am using reiserfs on my laptop / partition, and everyonce in a while, / will not propery get remounted read-rwite. checkroot *says* it has remounted / read-write, but then almost every action afterwards proceeds to fail with the error "read-only filesystem"
Comment 2 Evert 2004-10-30 01:40:03 UTC
try this, seems to works for me...

rc-update del hotplug boot
rc-update add hotplug default
Comment 3 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-07-09 16:22:02 UTC
do you guys all use hotplug ?
Comment 4 Martin Schlemmer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-11 01:33:16 UTC
Mike, I wonder if this might not be fixed by the new remount code ?  Might be a
kernel issue with reiserfs/whatever that do not like remount ro of ro /, then
remount rw again ...
Comment 5 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-07-15 18:13:12 UTC
maybe ... can you guys try baselayout 1.11.13 and see if it works properly ?
Comment 6 Dead Schorsch 2005-08-12 05:55:39 UTC
It hasn't happpened for a long while now, so I didn't pay much attention to this
bug. As for me, it's fixed (though I do not know what fixed it) and can be closed.
