Many thanks for your efforts too - I successfully swicthed to ro / with
these advices (the only strange thing related to mount is that I can see
the .journal ext3 file in / despite the fact that /dev/root is marked ext3
in /proc/mounts - remounting the / again solves this strange behaviour)
Another small problem occurs when trying to keep /dev in ro:
# /etc/init.d/sysklogd start
Starting system log daemon: syslogdchmod: changing permissions of
`/dev/xconsole': Read-only file system
Must /dev be in a rw fs?
A last remark: should/when will we consider that writing to /etc is a bug?
