I'm using Gedit on Fedora, and when I try to save, it states that it's unable to, but if I try again, it succeeds. So, it saves only on the second attempt, every time.

  • So, you need to press Ctrl+S twice?

    You should probably include a more detailed error message. We need more info to help.

  • What version of Fedora is this, and what is the underlying filesystem? Aug 25, 2011 at 0:08
  • On the first try I get: "Unexpected error: Error renaming temporary file: Text file busy" so I click cancel. On the second it succeeds to save. It's Fedora15, I'm not sure what fs it is, how can i check?

OK, I've fixed it. It was in a shared folder with VBOX host, now I moved it to a different folder and it was solved.
