PEBKAC ?  dont make /media/ read-only ?
Comment 2 Tavi Notrub 2008-02-01 00:06:31 UTC
It is mounted as read/write.


/dev/hda6 on /media type vfat (rw,uid=1000,gid=100,umask=0000)

I unmounted it and hal installed this resolved...not sure.

vfat is a bad idea, frankly, esp. since .foo is illegal filename there. Every ebuild that does keepdir will fail the same.
