[root@midnightsun cybmon]# rpm -Uvh sysklogd-1.3.31-17.i386.rpm
sysklogd                    #############can't rename /sbin/syslogd to
/sbin/syslogd-RPMDELETE: Operation not permitted
unpacking of archive failed on file /sbin/syslogd: cpio: unlink
Comment 1 Need Real Name 2000-12-18 09:25:01 EST
[root@midnightsun /sbin]# rm syslogd
rm: remove write-protected file `syslogd'? y
rm: cannot unlink `syslogd': Operation not permitted
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2000-12-18 09:58:49 EST
You appear to have done something odd, like tried to upgrade on a
read-only filesystem, or have made /sbin/syslogd immutable. RPM
isn't going to work in that case.
