i want to edit the file menu.lst in /boot/grub i m facing a problem of not to enter in to the graphical interphase, so i m using only the boot terminal whn i try to edit this file it says the file is read only. i tried to change the permission of file with chmod also
but it is also not working i tried the comand gksu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst but it is not opening the file to edit since the graphical interphase is not there.
i log in and went to the policy folder to erase the file prefernces.fdi and it would not let me delete this file /move it to the trash or even edit it it said something like you are not the owner ,so i could not change the permissions to overwrite this file.what should i do i just want to be able to change this file to true so it will see my internal sc dar reader right now when i put in a sd card it does not show up.i also tried changing this in the terminal there was a post on one blog that showed how ,but i was having trouble edit the xml file in the terminal so for me it would be easier to just overwrite the prefernces.fdi file since im a beginner.
I have apache2 running on my computer. I want to change the permissions for /var/www/ so that I can edit the files without a problem. Right now I can use the gksudo command, but I'd like to be able to have all the files available when using an IDE like eclipse. I've read in several places that Code: chmod 755 /var/www will do, but if I'm not mistaken that would give read/write access to anyone. I'm not in a production environment, so I'm not too worried about security, but I'd like to give anyone else as less permissions as possible. Would this be possible?
I bought a new SD card which I intend to put some MP3s on - except that I can't write to it because it tells me the destination is Read Only. No-probs thinks I: I'll just reformat it.
"Error creating file system: helper exited with exit code 1: cannot open /dev/mmcblk0p1: Read-only file system"
Various chmod commands all result in Read-only file system. I tried umount then mount commands, but it couldn't find it to mount once I'd unmounted it using the same /media/ file path (I assume it's the only one).
I am trying to edit my grub.conf file. I am logged in as root. It says it is a read only file. I have tried to set permission with chmod 777 and also tried through GUI. Using VI it says it's a read only file. Using nano it will not write either. I have two choices on boot up. I want to automatically go to second automatically. First at the moment is CentOS-4 i386 (2.6.9-55.ELsmp) and second is CentOS-4 i386 (2.6.9-55.EL).
My Redhat Enterprise Linux 4 with 6x partitions (/, /boot,/home, /usr, /var, /tmp) of 6.0 GB IDE Hardisk was working quite fine. I decided to create LVM on /home and /var partitions but due to some errors occured and I delete the /home partitions. That's why partition table altered. I then delete 4,5,and 6th partitions (/home, /var, /tmp) partitions and now try to create one by one but following error is coming:-
The Super block could not be read or do not describe a clear ext2 file system. E2fsck b 8193 <device> I have tried following commands,but could not successful:- e2fsck -p /dev/hda7 (where hda7 was created but afterthat it was deleted) e2fsck -a /dev/hda7
Have just assembled a new computer and thought I would install the 64 bit version of openSUSE 11.2 in a "Windows free zone". After a hiccup or two I have managed to get a system of sorts running but on trying to copy files from my old computer(via a memory stick) it tells me that Vfat is an unknown file system.On my old computer I am running 32 bit openSUSE 11.2 as a dual boot system with Windows XP and have no problems moving files between the two different file systems.Is it possible to get a 64 bit file system to read 32 bit file system drives and if so how do I do it?
All my torrents go to my home/username/Download/ folder, I could read/write yesterday but now I cant even copy the files to a flash drive.The error i get is "Cannot create regular file '/home/username/Download/file' : Read only file system.
yesterday my downloads stopped working in transmission and gave an error: 'read-only file system'i have since found that all files on my eternal hard drive are now read only.i think it may have something to do with me recently changing the download location to my external hard drive in transmission. how i can rectify this and make it so i can read write again
I have a problem with my USB drive. When i try to make a file transfer, i get the error message which says that it is a 'read only file system' and i can not transfer any files. While looking for a way to solve the problem, i came across another case similar to what i have now which discussed in this thread: [URL]
However, i didn't understand how to resolve the problem from that thread.

I insert a certain cdrom into my DVD drive, the cd is mounted meaning I do can see the cd rom icon on my desktop. The cd rom icon name is the correct label of the cdrom but when I try to open the cdrom it results to be empty.
Then on the same computer I have installed Virtual Box and the Windows 7 image does read the content of the cdrom.
How can I read the content of the cdrom with ubuntu 9.10?
When trying to copy files from a local folder into a directory that is a mapping of my QNAP server I get an error message " Read-only file system" - and this only since a couple of days.Trying to change ownership with sudo chown also failed.
I am trying ti set up a NFS server using the guide on [URL] However, the NFS mounts on the client side as a read-only file system, so I cannot modify nothing. Here is my /etc/export file on the server side:
Code: /home/acrocephalus/ 192.168.1.35 (rw,async,no_root_squash) and this is my /etc/fstab file relevant line on the client side Code: 192.168.1.33:/home/acrocephalus/ /home/acrocephalus/AcrocephalusServer/ nfs rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr Then, I mount the system using the command Code: sudo mount /home/acrocephalus/AcrocephalusServer/ .

What are the possible problem when Windows access the file from Ubuntu got Read Only even though have a full permission to read, write and execute the file? Ubuntu to Ubuntu accessing the file there is no problem only Windows got a problem.
I have tried to write my files to 2 (2GB each) USB sticks and both turned into a Read-Only-File-System. Then I tried with my Memory Stick Duo and it also turned into that. So I give my last try with my SanDisk HC Memory Card (from photo camera) and resulted the same. I can copy the files of those portable storages into my HDD fine but not write into them or delete any files inside those portable storages.
I have a 9.04 64bit Ubuntu server that I use for a home file server and for downloading duties, every few days the root filesystem gets remounted as read only, usually requiring a reboot and fsck to get everything running again. The box is tucked away in the roof space to keep the noise down so it's a bit of a pain to keep pulling it out to get console access.troubleshoot what might be causing this?/ is on a raid 1 array on 2 8GB usb sticks last few lines of DMESG EXT3-fs error (device md3): ext3_journal_start_sb: Detected aborted journal
Code: [632280.290419] journal_bmap: journal block not found at offset 23180 on md3 [632280.290470] Aborting journal on device md3.
Every time when I right click the USB drive icon and select "Safely remove drive" I always get this error message
FAILED: No such file or directory even though the icon does disappear from the desk top. I have been ignoring it since the USB drive seems working fine.Now I have a more serious problem. When I tried to copy files onto the USB drive it says "read only file system" and doesn't let me. I tried unplug and plug the USB key but that doesn't help.
I'm having real issues installing 10.04 to an SSD - I had one SSD fail, and have replaced it with a brand new one, but the 10.04 installer fails at beginning to write files to the disk with this error:
[Errno 30] Read-only file system: '/target/bin'.
* Windows XP will install to this SSD with no issues
* I can install 10.04 to a standard HDD with no errors.
What is happening that is stopping me from installing 10.04 to this drive? I am fairly sure that there is no issue with the SSD (I have two brand new, identical OCZ Vertex II 60gb drives which both encounter this error.)
I have tried partitioning the drive using gparted on another machine, leaving 5mb free at the start of the drive, and having a single partition for /, and a 1gb swap partition. "Round to cylinders" was unchecked. The partitioning was successful, and the drives can be mounted on my other machine, but the 10.04 installer encounters the same error.
1. What can I use to read/write to my ext4 file system in Win7 x64? 2. I use Macbuntu. Is there any way to get a translucent top bar 3. My computer seems to be running hot while on Ubuntu. The fan speed seems increased. It goes back to normal on Windows though.
