hehe im glad you figured it out but i havent
Im trying to move a file from cdrom to my home directory (which i assume is the standard place to stick stuff)
i went into the cdrom and typed
cp filename ~
and it said "cp: cannot create regular file '/home/jason/filename': Permission denied"
I did "su" and typed the same thing and it went into my root directory instead of in the directory of the user i was logged in as. Anyone know why I dont have permission? Thanks for any help
edit: i cant do anything with my username! I tried to untar the file and it said cannot create file no directory exists or something like that. I then did su and put in my root pw and it did it with no problems
