DIY edition Ubuntu - Filesystem in Readonly mode

Hi, I’ve recently received my new Framework DIY edition and have installed Ubuntu 22.04 as the OS with 250GB - WD_BLACK SN770 NVMe as disk. I have experienced a few crashes with no obvious triggering event. Firefox crashes and then cannot be re-launched. All icons on the screen fail and other applications cannot be launched When I try to power off the computer there is an error message from systemd reporting that the filesystem is in read-only mode. After restarting the error is gone.

Does anyone have any ideas what the issue could be or have any suggestions for how to diagnose it?

Warm welcome!

Yes, I experience the same with the same drive type, just another size (1TB).

If you add the following kernel parameters its better, but at least for me not completely gone:

nvme_core.default_ps_max_latency_us=0
pcie_aspm=off

You can also upgrade the firmware of the drive, you can read about it here. This helps as well.
Also good to update your BIOS 12th gen or 11th gen.

@Anachron It might be best to include how to add the kernel parameters.

@GhostLegion Right, good idea!

You can learn how to set your kernel boot parameters here.

Thanks both! I’ll give that a go.

@Ronan_McHugh Let us know if it helps and I’ll mark the topic as “solved”.

Will check back Monday, if Op has not replied, assuming it’s resolved and marking accordingly.
