    Dtivo/linux Questions!!!!!!!! Please

    If you do not have a bash prompt on your TiVo unit but would like to change file attributes can you use linux?

    I am using Linux V2.4.4

    If I remove a file out of a directory I am able to change the attributes with CHMOD.

    Everytime I try CHATTR it gives me UNABLE TO EXECUTE BINARY FILE

    Although inside that directory it gives me a OPERATION NOT PERMITTED

    Any thoughts on a way around this or can I use this version of linux to modify the permissions.

    The file permissions are listed with ls -l for the directory /etc/rc.d
    as drwxr-xr-x 3 root root /rc.d

    I chmod +w to this directory and now the directory as full permissions

    I am still unable to chmod the rc.sysinit file - operation not perm
