Re: Why is /live/image mounted rw?

I decided to just test mounting the /live/image as ro to see if I would cause any problems. Thus far, one day in, it hasn't caused any issues and everything (i.e. live-snapshot) I've tested so far is working as expected. Still not sure why it's initially mounted rw. I'll let it run this way for a while and if it continues to work well in ro mode I'll file a bug report to see if it makes sense to have it turned to ro by default.

Hello, I've build an debian live usb image based off of sid. Using live-initramfs 1.173.3-1 and live-helper 2.0~a8-1. I notice that when I boot the image off of the usb stick, that the /live/image partition on /dev/sda1 is mounted rw.

/dev/sda1 on /live/image type vfat (rw,relatime,fmask=0022,dmask=0022,codepage=cp437,iocharset=utf8,shortname=mixed,errors=remount-ro)

Does /live/image ever get written to? Why is it mounted rw?

I'm using snapshot persistence on another partition on the usb-stick. Basically I'd like to make sure that the usb-stick is not getting written to unless I ask it to with live-snapshot or a reboot, this way ensuring the usb stick has a long lifetime.
