    Trying to edit file onn hdd.

    My problem startet with my RedHat 9 server, i edited the file "/etc/rc.local".

    Then the server began doing some strange things and after some time i did not gett accses to the server any more. So what i need to do is edit this file inn Knoppix. But when i edit "rc.local" inn vim i get this message when i try to save the file "E45: 'readonly' optin is set <use ! to override>", i tried to to chmod 755 the file too, then i get this "chmod: changing premissions of `rc.local': Read-only file system".


    So can anyone pleease tell me what to do ?
    Or why i cant edit this file inn Knoppix ?

    Why are you trying to edit /etc/rc.local?

    Who are you trying to edit it as?

    Are you using sudo in front of the command to edit the file as super user (root)?

    Is the problem that the partition and/or folder holding this file is protected?

    not the most secure solution but you could do a
    Code:
    chmod -R
    to the whole partition.
