It would be really nice to include which database and which distribution / version of linux your using.

I am guessing (you give VERY little info) that somewhere on your filing system, as root, you need to do

chmod a+rw database.file.that.gives.permission.error

This will make the file writable by EVERYBODY, which might not be a good idea.

MySQL for example, creates a MySQL -user- who owns the database files and directories, making them accessible only to itself, which is much more secure that what I suggest here.

Perhaps your database program (whatever it is) is not correctly installed or set up?

What database? MySQL? PostgreSQL? What exactly are you trying to do? Setup a database? Move one from another system? Configure a Samba -password- database? A database for what?

If you want accurate, correct help please give more, and more accurate info as to just what your are attempting to accomplish or where the problem crops up.

actually the problem is regarding the installation of some pacages
i have installed turbolinux from system cds in the default mode
so i guess some pacages are not correctly installed or some problem with configuration
when i try running some commands related to rpms it gives db error (13) permission denied........
i tried changing the permissions of /usr to 777
but again the same error
i dont have applications like edutainment etc.......as well
i m new to linux so dont know varius things please help

Default mode? Maybe if you go for the custom or expert mode, and install EVERYTHING. I've noticed with Rh9 (it's old, I know) that it is much better to take the expert mode, and choose what you install. I've some package that won't compile in a "standard" installed Rh9 - maybe this RPM permission problem is something similar?
