After updating my EFIKA yesterday, I ran into a strange problem: my / partition was mounted read only, which obviously caused some trouble on boot and afterward. Of course / can be remounted rw:
mount -o remount,rw /
But it's better to have a permanent solution. The image originally came with an ro
boot parameter, meaning read only root. This needs to be changed. If you don't have make
installed, then first install it:
zypper in make
Then change to the /boot
directory, and open the file called boot.script
in your favorite text editor. At the end of the line starting setenv bootargs
, replace ro
. Save the file, and then execute the following command:
Which will compile boot.script
, which is in a form understandable by u-boot.
On next boot / will be mounted rw.
And one more good news: the annoying bug of not being able to shut down the EFIKA properly is now gone.
