Re: Problem in changing permissions for a directory

those are virtual directories, which don't really exist on the hard disk.
They're just simulated by the Linux kernel, and it wouldn't make a whole
lot of sense to change their permissions.  Actually, if you could change
permissions under /proc, chances are you might break something ;-)

On my laptop I'm very happy to be able to change the permissions of files

use them for).

that mostly depends on the filesystem. proc does not support that, sysfs
