fsck has failed on your / partition so it's been remounted read only,
hence the tty error message.
. you are already root
. *if* it's an ext4 partition do the following (substitute your root
partition for /dev/sda2, I'm guessing you have Widoof installed on the
first primary slice)

e2fsck -p /dev/sda2

Kind regards
