Im trying to update librtmp on my jynxbox running linux but i cant copy the new file over or remove the old one as i get the error "read only file system"

Im using winscp and putty and both give the same errors

Tried changing permissions via winscp and also via a command but get the same error each time

Anybody know how to change it from read only?

Thanks for any info

Il try tonight after work,thanks tuxen

So i just log in and connect and type mount in the command?

I can copy/paste/edit other files in the file system no problem.Even with xbmc file manager im able to do this,just not in this particular area

That's why it might need to be remounted as rw hopefully its not a incapsulated image mounted as a loop back device. I'm not that familiar with the innards. I have responded to you pm lets take the rest from there and post the solution, and yes just type: mount (enter)

We'll figure it out. :)

Just logged in to box with winscp and when i type mount i get this

/root$ mount
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw)
/dev/root on / type yaffs2 (ro,relatime)
devtmpfs on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,relatime,size=443660k,nr_inodes=110915,mode=755)
none on /proc type proc (rw,relatime)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,relatime,gid=5,mode=620,ptmxmode=000)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,relatime,mode=777)
tmpfs on /tmp type tmpfs (rw,noatime)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,relatime)
tmpfs on /var/log type tmpfs (rw,noatime)
