Can't delete file 'kcore'
There is a file which looks like this in /proc. I need to delete it since there is hardly any space on my 4GB hard disk. (I think this is a core dump and not useful)
-r-------- 1 root root 140939362 kcore
I am unable to delete it. I have already tried the following.
-> rm -f kcore
Cannot unlink: insufficient permissions
-> chmod 777 kcore
no error message but permissions remain the same
-> chown user1 kcore
Nope couldn't change the user.
-> Tried from the gnome file manager by right clicking trying to delete, change properties etc. but to no avail.
Am i doomed to live with this obscencely large file forever?
Thanks in advance for your solutions.
