Unhappy permission denied for root in FC4: why can't I modify own files?


ixis newbie needing some help... I am having a chronic “permission denied” problem here... since about some time and working as root all the time*. Some examples: I could not run java nor install a new one in my FC4. Ok, at the end I made some links and java was working (although is some times crashed my browser, oops), however the program I needed to install dependent on java, Apollo (fruitfly.org) failed to install due to permission problems with the java files. When I perform searches I don’t find files due to “permission denied” to some files. And the last program last night... EMBOSS (emboss.sourceforge.net), a pain in the ass... I keeps on creating files that I can not access during the installation process, at least not directly... and this ends up in error and stops the installation. I can go and change the permissions, and then it works, but then more and more “forbidden files” appear and I don’t understand why files created in my session are not accessible to me!!! Anyway, does not root have access to everything???
Strangely some time ago when I installed EMBOSS for the first time, I did not have direct access to internet through the network... and the installation went perfectly (only some errors due to no access to internet databases), EMBOSS programs worked.

*or is there a difference if I log in as root from a terminal within a user session or work directly on the root session???

Please help, linux is tricking me : (

ps: sorry I could not post the complete url's cause im too newbie...

G'day mate :}

Well, it would help if you could copy and paste the output of some of
those attempts, together with the actual output of ls -l of both the
directories content and an ls -ld from the affected directories parent.

Knowing what filesystem and mount-options have been used for the mount-point
you're trying to write stuff to might also be significant information.


Cheers,
Tink


P.S.: Whereabouts in NZ are you? :}

Hi Thinkster,

Thanks for the reply. Well I did not post any huge bunch of error messages cause I thought there might be some really “obvious” action that I should have performed and I did not. Mmm, I can not post my error messages because it's confused with urls... and I can not post urls till I have at least five posts... Well, this is one...

Hi Thinkster,

Aha, now, this is the error message I obtain when trying to install Apollo:

The permission information you asked for:

And I’m afraid I’m not sure what you mean by “mount points”. The only thing I can thing of is my fstab file, here it is:

# This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details

Please let me know any more information you need. By the way I am in Christchurch... Uni of Canterbury.

Cheers,

Iris
