How to place a file into root on Raspbian?

Tue Oct 11, 2016 3:58 pm

I have a driver that I need to place into the root directory on my file system but it says that I don't have permission. Is there anyway to work around this?

Why do you think you need to do that? What's the file, what's the reason for putting it in the root?
