My system (12.04 Ubuntu LTS) is auto-mounting as read only and I have no idea why.
Output of fstab:
cat /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0 # / was on /dev/sda1 during installation UUID=28db2489-f60e-456c-9efd-7a961f3e970a / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 # swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation UUID=106e4470-d734-4cec-98a6-c7859aaedf18 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0

I have no idea why this is going on. I did run fsck at boot and it didn't find errors.
The disk is fine (500GB, user 38GB)
