Right then lets get back on thread here 

Still with this problem of mounted ro i have been doing a little bit of
messing  and the result is to say the very least strange and out there
somewhere .

Bring the box up init3   all drives mount ok  sda1 sda3 & sda4 all
mount rw

bring the machine up with KDM  sda3 and sda4 both show ro but if i do
not actually log into KDE and Ctrl Alt F1 to a text prompt login as
root  mount shows all drives correctly mounted rw  the  Alt F7 log
into KDE then check and the drives have been re  mounted ro

Can someone explain that one cus i am up a gum tree the years i have
been running Linux (Almost since day 1) i have never seen anything like


Linux 7-of-9 3.5.4-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Sat Sep 15 08:12:04 CEST 2012
x86_64 GNU/Linux
