Kubuntu 8.41 file system goes to read only every day.


Here is my problem. Every day that I turn on my computer the file system will in a short time go to read only. I reboot and the system and it automatically starts checking my file system. I then have to do a FSCK, it usually will fix about 35 inodes then I reboot and every thing is ok. I have searched and seems like no one else has this problem.

MSI main board
AMD 64 X2 dual core 5600
3 gigs of ram
On board Nvidia video
Kubuntu 7.41 LTR 32 bit

Thanks
Ben

Boy, If that feature is in 8.41, I think I'll stick with 8.04 or 8.10!

Can you post your /etc/fstab?

Fstab

here is a copy of my fstab

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# /dev/sda5
UUID=7ab07d01-33e0-4b51-bae8-6bfb765c9739 / ext3 relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /dev/sda6
UUID=262fdac3-1ff0-4d56-ae88-f4cb27d5ebef /home ext3 relatime 0 2
# /dev/sda3
UUID=977682ec-3c57-449a-b5a5-b12bec869803 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0

This has been going for long time. Not only on this install of 8.XX. I have removed and reinstalled at least twice. This is dual boot with XP pro no problems. I have mandriva and suse loaded at one time or another and no problems. I like Kubuntu and if I have to put up with it I will. It seemed to start with Adept so I went to command line with Apt-get for updates.

here is the problem you have a fsck problem and when booting it is in read only so the fsck does not write to the disk hidden folder for fsck. and the the program reboots it will do a fsck -M and it will skip. so what you need to do is start in recovery mode go to root prompt.

unmount /dev/sdXX and the do a fsck -f -y /dev/sdXX if it will not unmount then you will have to do it mounted.
Quote:
Very rare and advise against fsck on a mounted drive.
if it ask you to create a lost and found do it. there is a little hidden file on that hard drive that tells it when it has been mounted and a copy of the hard drive map and the map does not match the hard drive this invokes fsck and then it will do. The whole object is to put the disk in order and up date the disk map file. in rw

good luck. this is a common problem with Ubuntu because of the run levels that it uses telinit 1 is like run level 3 and a half in other systems. after done reboot all is well or you can boot you live disk and open a terminal and sudo umount /dev/sdXX and then fsck -f -y /dev/sdXX XX <--- enter your drive most system will fall back to maintenance mode and then run fsck or e2fsck but sence you do not run in the console mode. just gui
if this keeps happening then shop for a new hard drive

Sill not fixed

Sorry it took so long for me to reply. I found that it will only go to read only once in day, so I had to wait for each mornings boot to see if the FSCK solution worked. This morning before normal boot I went to the maintenance command prompt did the FSCK, less than five minuets latter read only.
