i installed xbasic making sure i met all the requirements and tried to run it. at first i created an icon and ran it and nothing happened. i then open konsole and ran it and came up with errors that said system not supported. okay no big deal. the deal is though, that i got a nice big core file about 541 MB in which the properties of the file say it was created today (11/7). the core file was actually a link in the /dev directory which pointed to /proc/kcore. i deleted the link and tried to delete the /proc/kcore file. is this file deleteable?
Things i've tried:
open konsole as regular user. typed su and password and tried chmod 700 /proc/kcore, rm /proc/kcore.
logged in as root and did the above.
as root navigated to the /proc directory using the home desktop icon and tried to changed the kcore permissions to rw and delete the file.
all these attempts failed and i can't change the permissions to delete this file.
thanks for you help.
