1 Hello list,
3 My little Atom box has a small rescue system which I boot once a week to back
4 up the main system. The backup script is a simple list of bash commands to
5 mount partitions and tar them to a USB disk.
7 While the backup is running I run another script to clean up after any recent
8 update, which involves removing surplus packages, running eclean etc.
10 But! At least once per session I have to remount the root filesystem read-
11 write because something, presumably tar, has caused it to be remounted read-
12 only.
14 Where do I start tracking this down? This behaviour was a factor in my
15 suspecting an SSD failure, but I've replaced that and still get the same
16 remounting.

20 Peter.
