sarge upgrade -> root mounts readonly
I have been running woody (kernel 2.4.24) happily for 6 months on my ultra
10. this week, i decided to upgrade to "testing" by changing my
sources.list and running "apt-get dist-upgrade".
everything appeared to work fine. a few days later, i rebooted and only
the root fs mounted read-only. i didnt modify /etc/fstab or anything.
so why might this happen?
two lines of the boot sequence that might have to do with the problem are:
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
Error! Cannot fsck root fs because it is not mounted read-only
then several lines later...
VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly.
i wish i could include more of the dmesg, but i have no network
connectivity on my computer now. any help would be greatly appreciated!
