Description

It should be read only by the end of the boot process, but it doesn't seem to be making that change when packages were reinstalled during that boot.

Specifically it was 52f4c092b14cca36bcc430717baf907273b66532

I don't think I saw the discussion on this, so I don't know the exact reason that was done.

This is happening in RC1; I haven't yet tried a newer snapshot to check there.

Using nanobsd i386 8.1-release-p4 Jul 8 06:31:18 EDT 2011, after resetting to system default and rebooting, the / mount is set to RW.

It is my impression that it should be RO after the bootup is complete.

The filesystem is mounted noatime, so even if it's left rw, it still isn't touched except when the system wants to write out things like the config, which it switched to rw to do anyhow. It should still be fixed at some point before release, but it isn't as critical as it looks.

I put a fix that helps this.
Can you please try with latest snapshots?

It ends up read only but it breaks many other things if you upgrade with packages. GUI doesn't load, many processes die with sig11. Same thing that happened last time a fix was attempted.

Seems we need to revisit this again... If a NanoBSD upgrade reinstalls packages, once again it tends to completely hose the system these days until you reboot. Sometimes the GUI will not respond, many processes still sig11, and so on.

I have also seen this behaviour - both filesystem RW and sig11 process exits. Now I know it is not just me I will look harder and see if there are any interesting things in logs before rebooting, try to work out what combinations of packages etc have the symptoms.

With changes done to the reference counting code this should be fixed.

This is fixed from all the tests I've tried, and others on the forum have reported it to be fixed.
