Talk:Colorful Bash Prompt
From WebOS Internals
--Cooknn 15:05, 21 February 2010 (UTC) Even though I'm root I get "read only filesystem" when I try to create /etc/bash or even modify /etc/profile. Suggestion would be greatly appreciated!
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).
