    I want to modify /etc/profile for the Bourne Again Shell I just installed, but even as root I'm getting read only errors. It's been a while since I worked with Unix - I could use a hand with this. Thanks in advance.

    Read only file system

    The file system on the WebOS is *mounted* read-only, so no process (superuser or not) may modify the file system.

    To make changes, you have to 'remount' the file system in read-write mode:

    mount -o rw,remount /

    This command must be run as with sudo (or as root).
