    Weird filesystem problem

    I have the weirdest problem. All of the sudden, when I do a make menuconfig, or any other config, in any kernel directory in /usr/src/, it fails citing a read-only filesystem as the problem. But, I never set up my filesystem to be so.

    The usr directory has its own disk, an IDE running EXT3 whereas most other directories or on a SCSI using ReiserFS. As far as I remember, I've compiled kernels on the usr disk (had to move usr there because I was running out of space on /). Does anybody have any ideas how my usr directory could have become read-only?

    Here's the line from fstab
    /dev/hda3 /usr ext3 noatime 0 0

    I'm stumped, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Type 'mount' and see if /usr is mounted ro.
