singularity in the filesystem

I fail to delete the file

/opt/kde/share/mimelink/application/x-lyx.desktop

with size 0 and mtime Jan 1 1970   :?

[root@localhost application]# rm *
rm: cannot lstat `x-lyx.desktop': Permission denied
[root@localhost application]# ls
ls: x-lyx.desktop: Permission denied

same for chown and chmod

A bug in the reiserfs ?

Re: singularity in the filesystem

try doing a reiserfsck on that drive while booted into a live cd...something may pop up.

Re: singularity in the filesystem

you don't have to use a livecd to do this - append "init=/bin/sh" to your bootloader and use reiserfsck when the prompt shows up... smile


To err is human... to really foul up requires the root password.

Re: singularity in the filesystem

Point is to not use the rootfs when doing the fsck, and there init=/bin/sh doesn't help, that's why Penguin suggested to use a liveCD.
