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

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.
