(error noted here http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...&postcount=161) Worth bringing it up anyway I hope as a failed DIAGS startup script might be a bit horrible.

Check your alias list, you probably have rm aliased to 'rm=rm -i'
That is the usual source of the "really delete this?" message.

Setting '-i' on a directory may not give you the expected results.
I suppose it depends on your expectations though.

Setting '-i' on an executable file that you do not want deleted, now that does what is expected (shows even root the middle finger).

@NiLuJe: These are not actually xattr (which are name:value pairs), these are extended permissions.
http://linux.die.net/man/2/listxattr

Although this page (which lists file permissions) has the word "attributes" in the chattr description.
http://linux.die.net/Linux-CLI/file-permissions.html

The "key" to sorting out what is what here -
"chattr" works on file systems even if the kernel does not have support for xattr optioned for that type of file system.
