Folder not writeable error messages

I restarted my computer to install a GPU that i plan on using for virtualization GPU passthrough, but i’m still using my original gpu, and displays fine.

But then Firefox tabs started crashing randomly, and firefox too.
So i installed Chromium cause i thought Mozilla is having issues.
Then chromium crashed as well.

Then i wanted to restart the computer and got this:

There was one more that appeared before it actually restarted, and i got one of those before the login screen showed up.

What’s happening?

EDIT: The “boot” LED on my Asrock B550m mobo was flashing, not sure if that’s related.


I thought it was maybe a failing ssd (though it shouldn’t it’s new), so i installed smartctl and this is the output from smartctl -a /dev/nvme0n1.

So the disk seems fine. No idea why the boot LED is flashing red.

Please also have a look at:

because this seems to be the GUI-picture of the same Message

And please do not post pictures when it is possible to post text :wink: because pictures are not searchable in the forum !

I’ll check the thread out thank, but i can’t post text because i couldn’t copy it, the system was mid restart.
I suppose i’ll type it out next time.

SSD seems fine.

What is the output? :arrow_down_small:

$ sudo btrfs property get -ts /
$ sudo btrfs property get -ts /home/

Did you boot off a selected read-only snapshot via GRUB?

Both output:


And no, GRUB boots automatically, i didn’t change default boot at all, and i doubt it changed itself.

Is it possible to do with the GPU i installed? It’s right above the SSD, and the BIOS red LED started flashing at boot, but after that, and after i click ok on the error messages, it works fine…

Not sure what happened cause the SSD and the file system seem fine.

I’m setting up GPU passthrough so, few restarts and logouts later, this seems to be fixed by this:

No idea why it got disowned, but taking ownership of that folder back fixed it it seems, i’m not getting those errors anymore.
