Question File Permissions


hi,
i created a directory called "setiathome" in the "/" directory. i changed the permissions to read, write and execute for others and groups. seti runs fine if i'm logged in as root. but if a log in as a user i get an error when starting seti - "Can't create file result_header.sah - disk full?"

is it enough to change the permissions on the directory alone? what am i dong wrong?

Not sure why you're getting a disk full error, but, I wouldn't recommend putting the directory in "/". The root directory should only contain system folders and files.

If the program will be ran by users you probably want to create a directory in each user's home directory. ( i.e. /home/joeuser/setiathome )

Arrow Disk Quotas

Are you using disk quotas ?
Use the quota command to list a user's disk quota.
Code:
quota <user>
