Morning David

Yes this is a real cracker and it only started after a big update  .

What i have found is  if i boot with the Arch boot cd  the fsck both "/
and /home "  it will boot fine but like this morning it has booted but
with / mounted ro  which means i can not do any updates  another time
it will be /home that comes up ro but there is no problem to be found
with the disc itself  , I am wondering if it is  an SATA problem again .

I have had too many problems with those stupid crappy designed sata
data cables , i have never seen such a pile of puke as the SATA
connection design and whoever designed and ratified needs to be hung
drawn and slaughtered.
