I have tried to edit both my .profile, .bashrc, .inputrc and none of them will let me save any changes without throwing an error.

Code:
Can't open linked file for writing
Yet this git/dotfiles folder that it links to doesn’t even exist. I am very new to git only started using it to keep track of few applications i have been working on. But I have no idea why its taken over all my these files. Anybody know why this is?

OpenSUSE 12.3
Git 1.8.1.4

Thanks
