Unable to remove directory from my Fedora 11 system


I installed eclipse on my linux fedora 11 system. After the installation completed I was unable to launch the application for whatever reason,so I decided to go ahead and remove it. I am unable to remove it.

I use rm -rf eclipse and I get the following error message: I am new to linux OS and am learning about it. If you could please help me out figuring out why I am getting this error and How I can prevent it from happening in the future.. Thanks.

Another error.

Even when I do an ls I get an error and is associated with a directory that came with the installation of eclipse. Here is the error:

[miguel.lanz@edgarosy ~]$ ls -a
ls: cannot access workspace: Stale NFS file handle
ls: cannot access .icons: Stale NFS file handle
ls: cannot access .thumbnails: Stale NFS file handle
ls: cannot access .themes: Stale NFS file handle
