Hi,

I can't use the command du -sk * for /tmp directory. i found this is due to the appearance of directory -TRASH under /tmp. How to remove this -TRASH?

/tmp> ls -l |more
total 66328
drwx------   2 root     system        23040 Dec 29 2005  -TRASH
-rw-r--r--   1 root     system          727 Apr 14 2005  .ctinst.log
-rw-------   1 root     system            0 Aug 31 2004  .ipHarvest.log
-rw-------   1 root     system          135 Jun 22 2005  .list_filesets.out

Thx in advance.

Best Regards,
Terrence
