RE: Reinstalling packages

The only problems I've had with my disk are these remounts as read-only.
It has happened to me twice, first about 2 weeks ago and then yesterday.
I've been using my system for about 2-3 months.

Here's a copy of my dmesg file (as requested by Adam):

I also looked in /var/log/messages but again found nothing related..

After I finish reinstalling I'll try hdparm and see what happens.

You did say you'd had other problems, which sounds suspicious.

Or /var/log/*. Something will note / being remounted read-only.

What does 'base' mean? 'Section: base' isn't actually all that useful
any more. If you wanted all required/important/standard packages, you'd
use something like this:

  grep-status -eFPriority 'required|important|standard' | grep-dctrl
-FStatus -nsPackage 'install ok installed'
