Update your locate database and see if there are any other instances of the file? Just a shot in the dark


Chris: Yes, there are others:

The one I can't delete:
....and the others

What would be the issue if the above exists?

I am wondering if you can do something with the other link if there is one, eg delete it.
How many links does
ls -l /tmp2/local/lib/perl5/5.6.1/mach/Sys/Hostname.pm show. I'm guessing it is linked to the one in perl5/5.6.1.
Do you need perl 5.6.1? (sorry lost the earlier threads)
Can you delete /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.6.1/mach/Sys/Hostname.pm, then can you delete the one in tmp2?

Alternative this thread has instructions which which you might be able to adapt do what you want - see the response from Matthew Seaman involving clri(8)


(sorry rather long line)

It relates to Fbsd 4.6 but clri is still around so could still work. It does say it is dangerous and this example relates to a msdos filesystem.
