Which distro are you using? Try reinstalling the package that contains rmdir.

jzocco 04-10-2006 01:22 PM

i am using fedora core 4 so im not sure what package has it.

If you know could you tell me

Nylex 04-10-2006 01:23 PM

It's called coreutils.

Fill in the distribution you're using in your profile. Then this thread could have been over in 2 posts. :)

Then mention your distribution in your question. Makes it easier to answer.

I personally never even use that command. "rm -rf" works fine if you're careful.

i am specially fond of using.... rm -rf
it gives sort of funny feeling....

I always love it when you intend to type "rm -rf *.tmp" but inadvertantly mangle that to "rm -rf * tmp". Don't you just hate it when that happens?!

Hence the caveat... be careful! But that should go with anytime a file deletion is being performed.
