WHY read-only file system?


All of mount points indicated read-only file system when I done a command “fsck -t ext3 -a /dev/sda1”. what's wrong?

What are the permissions on the mount point? If you're mounting to say /media/usbdisk what are the permissions of /media/usbdisk? That might be the problem.
cheers,

Show us the complete output and we might have a clue on what is happening.

Also, note that fsck *must NEVER* be run on a drive that's mounted read/write. It should be unmounted, but if mounted, make sure it's read only.
