Would it be better to set up a read-only file system?

I have had problems with my SD-card. It became unreadable. This could
be because of the # of reads, or it might have been a bad SD-card.

Should I try the same, Ubuntu, installation again, or would it be
better to try a read-only filesystem, in order to reduce the writes?

What do you think? Is a 'normal' installation a good way to go?

Tx, pir

# of *reads*, unlikely.

bad card, likely

sdcards are cheap, just try another one...

Hi PiRANiA,

It's a good practice to make your "/var/log", "/var/lock", "/var/run"
etc. folders as symbolic links to the "/tmp" folder. Logs can be
rotated, compressed and copied to some location on SD card using
logrotate + crond.

Cheers,
Max.
