ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 4701
Read-only root after installation of R4 on USB flash drive
Last modified: 2016-01-29 15:15:58 MSK
Description of problem:
The USB flash drive is mounted as read-only device after the installation of ROSA Fresh Desktop R4 on it. "/root" and "/home" are both read-only. So I can't use the system at all.
HP gt7725: http://hw.rosalinux.ru/index.php?probe=a41fd80751
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): R4
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ROSA R4 on the USB flash drive
2. Enter to the system
3. Try to install any package
Fixed by remounting root and home before login to the system (in the second console, Ctrl+Alt+F2):
$> mount -o remount,rw /
$> mount -o remount,rw /home
HP gt7725 + R4 on USB flash drive OK: http://hw.rosalinux.ru/index.php?probe=e7f513776c
All is OK after remounting.
Unfortunately, I cannot reproduce it on my computer. I tried both legacy BIOS and UEFI modes, but in all cases the root system was mounted read-write, and packages are installed without problems. (However, due to small USB flash disk I had to install ROSA without separate /home and without swap.)
Please, post the contents of: /etc/fstab, grub.cfg, journalctl -a.
Can you reproduce it on other computers by booting from the same flash disk?
No reproducer for a long time - let's close. There are numerous reasons for root partition to become read-only, each case should be investigated separately.
