root with limitted access rights?

I have some directories with access rights I want to change so I login as root and type for example:

chmod 755 /usr/include

/usr/include: Not supported

This only happens with some directories. Others can be changed without problems:

chmod 755 /usr/local

works just fine.

Any ideas?


That’s with 6.2.1 right. It was a bug in the package manager I beleive.

Thanks. Yes indeed I encountered this problem with a 6.2 (.0A) system.

Is there a solution (other than upgrade to 6.3)?

Try making a directly on the physical disk (boot from the CD and access it from /fs) call /usr/include and set the perms. See if fs-pkg then honours the base settings. I belive that it will.
