read only file system error
Hi All,

On my linux home server I have a second HD for data storage. The permissions are set to 777 and the fstab mount is set to rw for this drive, but I keep getting the message "read-only filesystem" error message only when i try to change permissions on these files: ie

drwxr-xr-x 3 nobody nogroup 4096 Jul 4 20:54 The Wallflowers/

Other than this type of files, I can read and write without any problem.

I have been in root, trying to change permissions, owner and group. What am I doing wrong.

Example message:

chmod: changing permissions of `ZZ Top/Tres Hombres/AlbumArtSmall.jpg': Read-only file system

Any ideas? Thanks!

root dosn't have write access to the file because he's not a member of "nogroup".

man fsck

But that file is a goner.
