drwxr-xr-x but read-only?


Hi.

Funny... one of my filesystem has gone read-only without my command...
As root, I get these:
=================================================================
# rm /usr/bin/bous
rm: remove write-protected regular file `/usr/bin/bous'? y
rm: cannot remove `/usr/bin/bous': Read-only file system

# cat >/usr/bin/gal
/usr/bin/gal: Read-only file system.

# ll -a /usr
total 232
drwxr-xr-x 19 root root 4096 Oct 11 2003 .
drwxr-xr-x 25 root root 4096 Feb 15 15:50 ..
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 61440 Aug 1 2005 bin

# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda2 6.3G 5.8G 160M 98% /usr
=================================================================
Is it because the filesystem is almost full?

Help will be much appreciated!

It may be mounted as read-only?

Code:
grep hda2\  /etc/mtab
