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.
I want to create a logon script (or somesuch) that creates a file (if it doesn't already exist) and checks the file for some info otherwise. If it finds a given trigger in that file, it logs into a local database and does some operations.
Now my problem isn't with creating that file or even getting it to function as a logon script -- it's with permissions. After the logon script creates the file, I want that user to have read access on it ONLY. Further, I don't want to give the user any kind of root access so that they could do the database operations in question or chown/chmod the file.
What's the best practice here? I'm noticing that whenever the script runs (in .bashrc right now) the script runs with the current user's permissions. Ideally, I'd like to make it so the login script can run at a higher level of permissions, (higher than the user has). Is this even possible? What's the best way to do this?
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?
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 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).
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
I am unable to create either a file or a directory in a specified path in Linux. I am getting the error "No space left on device". I have checked with df -k and df -i. Free disk space is 28 % and free inodes are 28 %. What else could be the reason?
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?
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.

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.

However, i didn't understand how to resolve the problem from that thread.

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:

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.
