hi all, i just started linux a few days ago, i encountered a problem where i can't edit any document with vi. Whenever i wanted to save the changes, it will say
E45: 'readonly' option is set (add ! to override)

how do i disable this readonly?

Ehh... Not sure I understand. Are you the owner of the document? Is the write flag set (chmod +w) for you?
