 Fo' shizzle.

 mount reveals that / is mounted read only currently, despite
 the recent reboot.

 I'll try a remount to rw, though I'm not too hopeful about
 that.  Annoyingly that box has no optical drive - and while it
 should be capable of booting from USB stick, I've always
 found that a bit messy, not least the BIOS fiddling that is
 often required.

 WTF can't you fsck a ro-mounted fs anyway?
