I own all of them, and the permissions are all 777. pascal@azazel /box $ ls -al total 147872 drwxr-xr-x 293 root root 12288 aoû 22 19:44 . drwxr-xr-x 25 root root 4096 jun 28 18:49 .. drwxrwxrwx 7 pascal pascal 4096 aoû 4 2010 131082 [...] I want to rename the directories : pascal@azazel /box $ mv 131073 NewName mv: impossible de déplacer « 131073 » vers « NewName »: Permission non accordée The message is in french, basically it said that I dont have the permission to rename (move) the directory.
