    That\'s the base profile for mysqladmin........ if this is a fresh box I don\'t see why you can\'t remove it to appease the install program.

    Ah, should have known.
    My bad- Yea whenever you see \"operation not permitted\" just figure that the renowned immutable bit hath been applied to the file in question. And/or some ungoldy other bit setting or thrice-removed old root user has permission over it.


    Word.
