I tried to install the zgcc environment as described by Jeff Fox at

to make a long story short I have this file path created


and "ls -a" issued from /mnt/card/cdev/.zgcc returns nothing.
If I try to "rm -r .zgcc" from /mnt/card/cdev I get "unable to remove '.zgcc': Directory not empty

I can rename the cdev directory, but I cannot rename the .zgcc directory. If I try to rename .zgcc directory I get "unable to rename '.zgcc': no such file or directory

I really need to delete the cdev directory and all files in it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

rm -rf /mnt/card/cdev/.zgcc

or if that fails
sudo rm -rf /mnt/card/cdev/.zgcc

If both of these fails then the SD card may be mounted read-only

Try rebooting the Z and try deleting again
