Ok.  Now I now, read-only mode via the config database is not

Also recall that going from 32 to 64-bit architectures may not work. Whomever wrote the idiotic policy of using vendor distributions needs to be educated. I only got 2.3.43 stable for me after applying a number of patches to it that I manually backported from RE24, and I have long since abandoned it for 2.4.
