And /tmp.

Obviously you need to remount,rw to update and you may have problems
forcing it to remount,ro without a reboot. You will probably be
rebooting after running pacman, most of the time though anyway.

Much simpler on OpenBSD, mount -urf works well and every time and
there are far less reboots required too.

A grsecurity kernel can send you logs whenever a remount takes place and
can't miss any like when using monit or something.

A benefit over OpenBSD.


 Why not do something good every day and install BOINC.
