some questions on debianslug
- Hi All!
I've been using debian on my nslu2 for a while now, it's just serving
files (samba) and running an ssh server.
everything is fine, almost; here are some things I'm annoyed with, it
would be nice if somebody can comment on these:
- top shows kpsmoused and kseriod are running; there's mouse nor
keyboard attached and I'm not using the serial port atm. are these
needed? if not, how to disable them (I'd guess rebuilding kernel
without mouse/serial support is the only way?)
- fstab mount options contain 'commit=120'. however, /etc/mtab says
it's 'commit=100', while the option isn't listed at all in /proc/
- /proc/mounts shows a line '/dev/sda1 /dev/.static/dev ext3
ro,data=ordered 0 0' I've not encountered this before (been using
gentoo all the time); what is it?
- more mount weirdness: I had debian running from a USB flash drive
for a while, but recently switched to a Lacie 2D with the ST350063;
sdparm --command=start/stop works as expected, but after doing start-
stop-start, the mounted filesystems suddenly got read-only and cannot
be written to anymore. mount -o remount doesn't work for any of the
partitions ('block device is write-protected'), but umount followed
by mount works for the data partition. moreover, umount on the root
partition doesn't give any output (looks like succeeded), although it
does not get unmounted. any way to fix this?
Thanks in advance!
