Can't remove .repo

edited August 2011 in General


Just got a new dedibox but ran pretty quick in something pretty noobish.
I created the .repo file lxcenter.repo with wrong information in it, so I just wanted to delete it and recreate it.
But for some reason I can't delete it, not even after a reboot, this blocks up Yum aswell.

rm: remove write-protected regular file /etc/yum.repos.d/lxcenter.repo'? y rm: cannot remove/etc/yum.repos.d/lxcenter.repo': Operation not permitted

Probably a stupid question, but I need it fixed.
Thanks for reading.

    Are you root?

    You can try doing:

    chattr -i /etc/yum.repos.d/lxcenter.repo
