I wanted to append my hosts file, so I changed the permissions to do so. This was before I caught on to the idea of starting another session as root and doing root things in root, not as the user. I failed to get them back as original. When I change to anything more restrictive than 755, I can't start the session on boot. Can anyone clue me in on what they are? Also, it seems that cron is failing to start, but do not notice any ill effects from that.
