Greetings all;

Wheezy on an atom board. Wheezy up to date.
This drive,mounted as /, has gone ro twice in 14 days. Doing nothing
but sitting there spinning and running wheezy's usual cron related stuffs.

Is this a bad, probably red, sata cable, or a drive with a belly ache?

Thanks folks.

Hey Gene,

Something's rotten. ATA failed write?  Change drive data cable first, check with smartmontools to see if the drive fails a SMART check. If a replacement drive starts doing the same thing, treat the controller as suspect.
