This sucks :-(It was *really* suprising to me that you can't repair a read-only mounted filesystem, I suspect it will be equally suprising to others.What is life without surprise? Windwos users are also surprised when they learn that we don't have (need) a C: on our computers :-)Suprised in the respect that ext2 and reiserfs have no such limitation, I was expecting xfs to be at least as functional and mature.
It's just designed differently.If You go buy a ferrari and go whine that you can't fit that piano in the trunk, then you have to think what's important for you. Fitting the piano or driving fast. If repair-on-mounted-filesystem is what you're after then you use a filesystem that supports it. If you're after a good, fast and stable (and mature) filesystem you stick to xfs. The choice is yours.
