No, it seems as if the / is mounted as rw. This is the layout;
/dev/sda2 on / type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
debugfs on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0620,gid=5)
/dev/sda3 on /home type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr,usrjquota=aquota.user,grpjquota=aquota.group,jqfmt=vfsv0)
securityfs on /sys/kernel/security type securityfs (rw)
Here is a clue; When i run rm -Rf /tmp/* I get the followin error
-bash: /bin/rm: Argument list too long
(the tmp folder is filled with files such as YaST2-32767-SW1uUX and so on. It seems as if YAST is creating an enormous amount of files the whole time it is downloading new updates…?! process y2base also changes PID all the time. Im trying to kill it…)
I dont know how, but I managed to solve the problem. What I did was basiclly the following;
I rebooted the machine and made sure that the updater/yast2 process didn’t restart.
I removed all the yast2-folders in the /tmp folder.
I did run a update to make sure that the same thing didn’t happen again, and it worked.
However I still don´t really understand why the yast2 process just went wild. There was a new process started every few seconds, which caused the application hang and creation of thousands of /tmp/yast2_* -folders.
