Hi, all
Sorry for my english
I'm returning to this list after a time out.

I had the same situation, a month ago, but in my case, the server was invaded.
I can't remove only one file, and I have the root of the server.

To solve, reinstall the server, only this, but I want to know the correct answer too..

Good time.
I can't remove the dir 'remove'.Some months ago i move it from /tmp and rename to 'remove'.I can copy it to another disk and remove from there , but i can't
delete it .I don't know what to think .See the outputs :
inf  5:32# rm -rf remove
rm: cannot remove directory `remove/.private/h': Operation not permitted
rm: cannot remove directory `remove/.private': Operation not permitted
rm: cannot remove directory `remove': Directory not empty

What about the permissions of the directory inside which 'remove' is located. In order to remove a directory you need to have write permissions on its parent directory. Also I see that you are doing all these as root (from the # prompt) Is that correct? In that case look out for the LDAP settings also.
