Sleep mode problem - Wakes up from sleep in read only mode.

Posted 08-14-2007 at 04:52 AM by gchakravarthy

Hello All,

Im using suspend command # echo mem>/sys/power/state. But when it comes out of sleep mode it is in read only mode,
We have a gumstix basic version board where the same kernel and u-boot code works fine, it comes out with write enable mode.

If we create any directory after coming out of sleep it say's Read-only file system, why is it so?

One of the greatest, potentially-too-long-&-boring-but-it-isn't, threads is here. I have spent several hours over the last 2 days reading it all & taking notes. I wound up w/ more items than I thought proper to put in the thread. So I chose 3 & posted them.

In addition to:
  • bash indirect variables
  • "Moving to Linux" class
  • "Linux for Cowards" (tm) presentation

Here are some that I didn't post:
