I have 2 files that resists all efforts to delete them. I can even move them
to another directory, but still cannot delete. Can chmod too, but still same
I originally figured they occupied a bad spot on the HD, but now not sure
Please, any suggestions about what to do to remove these files?
Here are the files and the error message:
rm: local/lib/perl5/5.6.1/mach/Sys/Hostname.pm: Operation not permitted
rm: local/lib/perl5/5.6.1/mach/Sys/Syslog.pm: Operation not permitted
I've gone all the way down to the last dir and tried to delete them there.
All directories in between only include the dirs and no files. I want to
delete the entire path of directories, but those 2 stubborn files will not
rm: local/lib/perl5/5.6.1/mach/Sys: Directory not empty
Please, any help appreciated!
