    Exclamation 3 problems in slackware 13.0


    Hello,

    I'm a bit of a newbie in slackware. I'm sorry if there are answers for my question in this forum, but i searched google and I didn't find anything.

    So, I've got 3 problems in my slackware 13.0 (2.6.31.6 kernel)

    1. "too many session files in /var/tmp" when i try to open a file using "vi".

    2. cp: cannot create regular file `....': Read-only file system -> when I try to copy a file.

    3. I have dead screens, when I use "screen -wipe" nothing happens. They still stay there, and the problem is, that I need to create new screens using the same names...

    Thanks.

    I've not heard of these problems. So lets start with some questions...

    a) This is a fresh install?
    b) Did you do a 'Full Install'?
    c) Can you post here the outputs of these commands:
    Code:
    mount
    Code:
    df -h
    Code:
    ls /var/tmp

    Hmmm, something like
    Code:
    screen -ls
    Might give a little more info.
    Can't tell an OS by it's GUI

    Hey

    Thanks for your reply. I found the problem:

    After "shutdown -hF now", the system checked for errors and fixed then (for now).

    The install was fresh but i had modified the kernel (i'm sure i didn't mess things up there).
