I am currently trying to start working with an embedded linux device (arm). When I am trying to install packages it fails saying that some
/usr/... path points to a read-only filesystem.
By looking at
/proc/mounts I found out that
/dev/root is indeed mounted at
/ with the
I found out that doing
mount -o remount,rw / did remount it in a writable fashion. But I would like to make this permanent.
The things I tried (unsuccessfully):
- Edit the uBoot kernel parameters so that the initramfs parameters do not longer contain the
roflag but rather the
rwone (I am not so confident about these initramfs things and this
/dev/rootscares me a bit as it does not show up in the normal file hierarchy)
- As 1. did not work (after a reboot) I also tried to remove the
fstabparameters (where the device shows up again, despite being used for initramfs)
The second try also did not make the root fs any more writable than it was at the beginning sadly. Is there something I am missing here (in the chain of mounting volumes after boot)? I would be very grateful for any kind of help
