Re: Read only filesystem when editing files

um...did you try it as root? Do you have /etc/ on a seperate partition? If so please post your /etc/fstab.

Re: Read only filesystem when editing files

Ok, I think I know what the problem is now, / is not in /etc/fstab. The new question is, how do i get it there w/o reinstalling everything?

Please post your fstab.

/ should definitely be in there...  ;-)

Are you using LVM?
