    making /var/hack read only

    I thought I did this my typing the following

    cd /var/hack
    chattr +i

    Isn't that all I need to do?

    Well like I said in another thread, if you don't prevent the Tivo from doing a purge when the logs get to big that won't help. But no, the syntax is

    chattr +i /var/hack
