    Don't worry - My headache is lifting. I may have to give up soon. Try this:
    rmdir --ignore-fail-on-non-empty --verbose /sys/module/speedtch/sections

    I've never tried it before, but what the hell.

    Very strange. Okay ... let's stop trying to delete the files for a minute and take stock. We're losing this battle at the moment. I would want to enter each sub-directory and check out the file permissions. What is in those directories??

    Try this:

    cd /sys/module/speedtch/sections/.strtab
    ls -al
    Then
    cd /sys/module/speedtch/sections/.symab
    ls -al

    Then post the output in here. I'm not feeling very optimistic at this point.

    Not sure ... if you really typed
    Code:
    bash: cd: /sys/module/speedtch/sections/.strtab
    Instead of
    Code:
    cd /sys/module/speedtch/sections/.strtab
    To me that looks like a sub-directory.

    and when i try typing

    Okay then ... Maybe someone else can help you then. I think I would need to have physical access to your computer to figure it out. I've never seen a case where root was unable to delete a file or directory. You can't have more access rights than that.

    I g2g now, if you think of anything please post, I'll check back tomorrow. Also, consider that the real issue isn't getting those directories deleted, it's getting speedtouch connecting to Wanadoo. Perhaps the soltuion I found isn't the best option?

    Okay then. Let us know how you're trying to connect. Broadband / dial-up (sounds like broadband). Modem/router ... if so, are you using a wireless router, or a usb modem.

    I think USB modems are a pain, but there you are.
