After reading an article on Linux security some time ago, I put some
extra security measures on my server (the same one that has the problem
with Redhad network update agent). This included protecting
/etc/lilo.conf. I am not sure what i did to it, but even as root or in
single user mode i cannot do anything to this file but read it. Even
the redhat 7 upgrade had problems with this file and aborted (causing a
huge headache, but this has been resolved).
I am certain that the drive is mounted read / write and that I have the
appropriate permissions to write to the file.
If anyone knows what I have done it would be great if you could let me
know = )
