Hi all,

I was playing with my tivo the other day and noticed that they mount their root file system as read only.  Does it make sense to do this in a gumstix?  I am making a sensor that will be running for many weeks and then suddenly have the power yanked.  I am worried about bad code trashing the directory or the power off event doing it.  I think that jffs2 will take care of the power off event,  but I am not aware of any actions I need to do to protect myself from bad code (I know,  don't write any! :-)

So can a gumstix file system be mounted RO?
