[fc-9-live-usb]
hi i get this error which means i cant visit websites.

i cant rm, cp, mv, vi, ... this file. how do i regain the ability to browse the internet ?

is there a way i can create a /etc/resolv.conf2 and have my system use that instead ?

thx,

Are you sure you don't use NFS ?
You can try reboot your box.

Or you can try to run 'ls /etc/resolv.conf' under strace and see what caused problem.

i ended up re-installing the live-usb once again.

it seems as if the sqaushfs uses some type of nfs emulation...

I had exactly the same problem on an eee-pc's ssd.

I tried fsck on boot but that failed. Went into the shell, remounted / read-only (difficult again) and did a manual fsck. Reboot and everything was good:

mount -no remount,ro /
fsck /


JCS.

I was able to use the above instructions after executing "shutdown now" to get to single user mode. Without it, the "/" was always busy. The disk had plenty of errors besides the resolv.conf problem. It works now!
