Question --- --- --- octal 000 permissions


i'm running slackware 9 with a reiserfs file system
several programs have crashed leaving behind files with permissions of 000 (octal)
i can't delete modify view or move these files although renaming the parent directory works.
every attempt to repair this fails with "permission denied" even as root
any ideas on what causes this or how to fix it?

As root - you could always try

chmod 777 filename

then try deleting them

What are the exact current permissions on any of these files?

Open a command line shell -

su
root password

ls -l path_to_file

Post the exact permissions on one of the files

the permissions are octal 000, at least thats the way the're reported by midnight commander, and how they act

with

ls -l this_file_for_instance

i get this:

ls -l /usr/lib/libgmodule-2.0.so.0.200.1
/bin/ls: /usr/lib/libgmodule-2.0.so.0.200.1: Permission denied

the files affect are binary,text or whatnot and the only relationship they seem to have
is they were open at a program crash, at least i supose they were,they relate to the program that crashed, and i dont know if they are are the cause or affect of the crash
this has happened with various programs such as opera, xchat, mc, xmms, tar
