Hi there,

with the help of Dan Wilcox I got pretty close to start my system "read
only" however I'm still getting a nasty nagscreen which I have to click away
while starting up. I really need this machine to start up automatically with
a read only filesystem.

The error is pretty much known in the internet forums. However I havn't
found a workaraound for a "read only" filesystem:

"could not update ICEauthory file /home/ingo/.ICEauthory"

/etc/fstab looks like this:

<file system> 	<mount point>	<type>	<options>
<dump>  <pass>
proc            	/proc           proc    nodev,noexec,nosuid
0	0

# /boot was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=6f3bcc50-4957-46a6-91d5-c8f5bbf77578	/boot	ext3	ro	0

# / was on /dev/sda2 during installation
UUID=6a94f9f8-6ee2-4e98-b57f-e2353b916b39 /	ext3	ro	0	0

/dev/sda3	/home/ingo/data	ext3	rw,user,noauto		0	2

tmpfs /var/run tmpfs defaults 0 0 
tmpfs /var/lock tmpfs defaults 0 0 
tmpfs /var/log tmpfs defaults 0 0
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs defaults 0 0

Also, sda3 is not mounting automatically if I set it to "auto". I was trying
to put the .ICEauthory file to the third partition and replace the original
one with a link.

I would appreciate it a lot if anybody had an idea how to eliminate the
.ICEauthory problem.

Thank you, Ingo
