Code:
rm: cannot remove `/mnt/me//ASendke/Listen/Status_Mtext.xls': Text file busy

Just delete a linux partition and now when i boot a message appears and says error: unknown filesystem grub rescue >

I have search on the net for this problem and i have understand it a little. But my situation is a bit different and because i don't want to format my hard disc i wanna try to fix it. So before a couple months i download ubuntu 9.10 and i installed it a month later. But my computer used to crash all the time and i couldnt use it.

Now i tried to delete the partition of ubuntu 9.10 from disc utility. so i have the message i wrote above when i boot. I dont wanna delete my windows xp and ubuntu 10.4. what should i do to stop this message from appearing.

General :: Getting Error Message - No Such File Or Directory

Sep 30, 2010

I am migrating an application from HP-UX to Redhat Linux and I have some files of scripts. In one of the script files I have the line /pylive/smartPAY/spserver/scripts/sp.con which is the correct path and file name for an existing file. However I get the message "No such File or Directory/pylive/smartPAY/spserver/scripts/sp.con" The script worked fine in HP-UX, why not in Redhat Linux?

Ubuntu :: Help With Bin File - Error Message - Bash - /hldsupdatetool.bin - No Such File Or Directory

Jun 9, 2009

I am new to Linux and I wanted to setup a dedicated game server on my notebook.

I've installed Ubuntu 9.04. I than created a directory named /home/phlex/kfserver. I downloaded the application binary from Steam. I changed the file permission with chmod +x hldsupdatetool.bin and now the file attributes are -rwxr-xr-x.

The problem is when I try to run the binary file. If I type ./hldsupdatetool.bin I get an error message "-bash: ./hldsupdatetool.bin: No such file or directory. It seems the OS can't find the file. I've downloaded the file several times thinking it may have been corrupt but it's not. I can delete the file, I can rename it and so the file is there. Sometimes Linux can be aggravating to use.

Ubuntu :: When Went To Mount D Drive (like Usually Do In Windows) Got The Error Message "directory D: Does Not Exist"?

May 7, 2010

i'm running ubuntu 10.04 and windows vista on my laptop and I installed Dos box on ubuntu quite some time ago, when i went to mount my d drive (like i usually do in windows) I got the error message "directory D: does not exist" i tried to fix it myself but i gave up because it wasnt that important. A while later i read on a webpage that "Linux doesnot employ the concept of drive letters" so i thought this must be the reason for this error message but why would there be dosbox for linux if that was the case

Ubuntu :: Server Directory Can't Delete Directory / Fix This?

Jul 9, 2011

Ubuntu server recently had issues with a disk. fsck seemed to correct everything, but I have one directory that I can't delete, chown, chgrp, chmod, etc.

Here's the listing for the directory
dr-x-wxrwt 2 16709 25134 8192 2020-08-23 22:34 UDLEDATB.DBF

Note the sticky bit is set and the uid is a number that does not appear in /etc/passwd.

Even as root, any attempt to delete, chmod, chown, etc. gives "Operation not permitted".

Since sticky bit on a directory restricts delete to the owner and the owner is invalid, I am stuck. I need to delete this directory.

How can I fix this?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete Gwibber Message History?

Jun 1, 2010

I thought I would give Gwibber a a try, so I set up my Twitter account with it. Seemed to work just fine. However, when I deleted the Twitter account from Gwibber, the messages I previously downloaded are still in the main window. I've checked for ".gwibber" in the home folder, but there's not one. So, I did a search on the machine for all Gwibber folders, and none had any message history in it.

I have a FAT32 SD card with a file on it, that, viewed in Windows the filename consists of a long string of nonsense.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Delete Directory After Git Clone

Jun 25, 2011

I have a couple of beginner questions;I have checked out some source code in a directory, not inside the home directory, using: Code:git clone git://git.videolan.org/ffmpeg.git ffmpeg-gitI moved the folder around (was not originally in the right directory), and now would like to delete it and start from scratch. How can I do it without creating issues with git? (I don't see ffmpeg-git in Synaptic)More generally, what is the best way to delete old folders related to obsolete or malfunctioning software, or even unsuccessful attempts at installing software ? Can I do 'delete' in the file manager? or just sudo rm <folder name> ? Or is there hidden issues?Another related question: When manually installing packages not available in Synaptic, for example, from downloaded tar.gz, what is the recommended directory structure. For example, is it better to use, for example: /home/<program name>/source to unpack the source code/home/<program name>/build to build the software?as opposed to using folders in the root directory? Is there a tutorial on the subject of best practice for directory structure?

Ubuntu :: Recover Delete User Home Directory

Mar 7, 2011

I run a server where multiple people can access it via SSH and have access to the same folder. Someone recently decided to stop using my server so I deleted their login account inside the User and Group GUI inside gnome. I accidentally selected delete files owned by this user. I didn't think much of it because the user didn't actually own any of the files since it was shared among all of them. Anyway, ALL the files in that shared home directory vanished, including the home directory. How can I recover this? It didn't move all the files to the root trash or my local user's trash folder. Are the permanently deleted?
