I'm guessing OP literally checksums the volume from the block device.
Yes, of course. I mean "md5sum /dev/sda1".
If I'm right, it could be anything, really, lots of filesystem metadata
moving around without actually touching any file contents (access times,
It's mounted read-only (actually also "noatime", although that is
implied by "ro"). The access times cannot change. Nor the other
metadata. And in fact they don't: "ls -Rl", "ls -Rlc", "ls -Rlu" report
no changes in the metadata.
So, Clive, what filesystem are you using?
Good point, that is probably important. ext3.
I wouldn't worry, the read-only option should be
enough, as long as you don't do any maintenance operations on it
I do NO write operation whatsoever on it. It is not allowed to change in
