View Full Version : How to change file permissions
06-24-2002, 09:37 PM
I'm on the last step in installing Kravens Xtreme update. I want to hard code my I.P. address and have attempted to edit rc.remote-login to do so.
It continues to say (read only). I've tried chmod 755 and 777 rc.remote-login but it stubbornly says read only. How can I get this file to take my edits?
Thanks for any help.

this is a rather strange issue, as the drive that /etc and thus the file you wish to edit is mounted as read-only.
you must first remount the drive as read/write, edit and save the file, then immidiately remount as readonly(for danger of permanent damage thus requiring you to restore your backup... you did backup right?)
to do this type
mount -o remount,rw /
then to remount readonly
mount -o remount,ro /
be VERY careful when doing this!!!
I take no responsibility to any damage you do while mounting / in readwrite on your TiVo.!!!
