    28 read-only filesystem, What now???

    I got fixup working fine, I got a serial cable thats always connected to my PC, so just re-running fixup every 20 days by hand was never a problem...now I want to get things a bit more automated, I want to run fixup from rc.init with a sleep 20d loop.

    I got to bash, I've xfer zmodem chattr (PPC version) to my tivo, but when I went to "chattr - rc.init" it tells me read-only filesystem. I have partition 7 and 9 mounted on my running tivo. 7 is root 9 is /var (/var is rw).

    Can anyone advise how to get partition 7 mounted RW so I can change rc.init? I could change it iin /etc/fstab, but thats also on my read-only root, you can see my delima here. Worst case scenereo I can pop the drive into the beast and use DBD to fix it, but that option would suck since I have my entire AV experience nicely cable tied into little bundles accoring to cable's function.....HELP

    mount -o remount, rw /

    mount -o remount, ro /


    the first one remounts as read/write
    the second remounts as read only
