Hi All, Can someone tell me what these dirs are for and why they're so hard to delete: [[email protected] plugin]$ pwd /home/ranbir/.cache/gnome-mplayer/plugin [[email protected] plugin]$ ls -l total 523808 drwxr-xr-x 2 ranbir ranbir 99831808 2009-07-24 22:43 gnome-mplayeraabsvy drwxr-xr-x 2 ranbir ranbir 107634688 2009-07-10 10:28 gnome-mplayercwgvib drwxr-xr-x 2 ranbir ranbir 29638656 2009-07-10 10:28 gnome-mplayerjjkyiv drwxr-xr-x 2 ranbir ranbir 101244928 2009-07-10 10:28 gnome-mplayerkaotaa drwxr-xr-x 2 ranbir ranbir 99209216 2009-07-10 10:28 gnome-mplayerrkujaa drwxr-xr-x 2 ranbir ranbir 98258944 2009-07-10 10:28 gnome-mplayerxnyieu I don't know how they were created. So I decided to delete them, but they don't actually get deleted. If I try an "ls", my HD grinds away without printing any output to the screen. I'm assuming the dirs are full of thousands of files. So, how do I get rid of them?
Those are most probably cached files which never got deleted after you closed your browser. rm -f should take care of it.
