    Industy PC with linux


    Dear all,
    I want to build a industy PC with linux, I want to ask a question, can I make a linux system to be read only, how can do it? Can anyone give me some tips!

    In my plan,
    / will be readonly
    /etc will be read-write
    /root will be read-write

    can I do it. Thanks.

    You are asking about file permissions. Yes you can do what you described, easily. Look at the "Linux File Permissions" tutorial by GoldenEye.

    if you want a directory and everything under it to be read only the easiest way would be to create it's own partiition and mount it read only

    I think
    Code:
    #  chmod -R 744 directory_name
    would probably be easier than repartitioning.

    lol true, just offering an alternative which can be reverted back to normal setup easily without having to worry about original permissions
