Hi

When i tried deleting files in "/tmp" it showed error so i tried deleting
file with the command

su -c 'rm -r /tmp/*'

/tmp needs to be 1777

in other words world writables with the sticky bit set

cd /; ls -l so see the permissions, should look like

drwxrwxrwt    7 root root  4096 Oct  3 10:04 tmp


Regards
John
