    root mounting ReadOnly

    This is the second time I have started a post similar to this , coz the first time, I could fix it really easily but after recompiling the kernel for CRUX 2.4, and reinstalling it, the problem has reappeared.

    Probably a call for Dapper Dan again. But here's my GRUB entry (no change since last install):

    title           CRUX 2.4
    root            (hd0,6)
    kernel          /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda7 acpi=force
    While here's my fstab entry (same as a working example in Ubuntu except for the sda, we use hda in CRUX):

    # /dev/hda7 
    UUID=119abafd-8929-486b-938b-76d8d221c868             /         reiserfs  notail                     0      1
    So anyone?

    If your still struggling with this one I suggest ...
    1. number one candidate is kernel modules/options ... make sure you compiled the kernel with reiser fs read/write support (in the kernel not as a module).
    2. check the output of
    dmesg | grep mount
    dmesg | grep error
    and see if you get any clues about why you have a read only mount
    3. check the uuid you have in fstab is correct.

    Good luck and let us know how things go.
