Partitions are mounted read only upon start up. I have to run the command
Code:
mount -o remount,rw /mountpoint
every time write access is needed. Also, the root paritiion, /run ,and /usr are the only partitions that get mounted upon boot. I have to manually mount the others (such as /var). Here is my fstab.
Code:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# noatime turns off atimes for increased performance (atimes normally aren't
# needed); notail increases performance of ReiserFS (at the expense of storage
# efficiency).  It's safe to drop the noatime options if you want and to
# switch between notail / tail freely.
#
# The root filesystem should have a pass number of either 0 or 1.
# All other filesystems should have a pass number of 0 or greater than 1.
#
# See the manpage fstab(5) for more information.
#

# <fs>         <mountpoint>   <type>      <opts>      <dump/pass>

# NOTE: If your BOOT partition is ReiserFS, add the notail option to opts.

Gentling ...

'/run' is tmpfs and should be mounted by bootmisc so you shouldn't be mounting it via fstab. As openrc uses /run for runtime data, and so keeping track of the boot process, I imagine this is the reason your mounts don't work correctly.

Now I've got an extra partition. You can never have too many of those. :roll:
I'm glad it was such a simple thing to fix.
