Ok I don't know what group this user is in?
I been using linux for a while and I still don't know how permissions work
OK first I want to know what command do I type in to find out what group does the user belong to blah blah
and if I change etc/fstab do i need to restart the services or does it just restart already after you save it?
Ok now my real problem..... OK my last install of slackware I just used root for everything... I mean everything... Installed programs under root, just only had root as the user... ok not for everything... tried to step it up
You know adduser blah blah
and then come across Permission denied... OK OK I'll search and search try and attempt different soultions same issue and still get PERMISSION DENIED.... Ok so whatever why not just run root I have nothing on my PC that a hack can make use of.
SO I got bored @ work and just sitting here having nothing to do and realize Oh wait... I'm such a noob I don't even have a swap space...
SO I search linuquestion.org and come up with the same issues that people where having and again I do the only search for the same issue and search and find the answer I was looking for
To Create a swap space = mkswap /dev/hda2 OMG that was my /
Ok Post my problem and I'm SOFL... Ok
@ least now I remmeber 1 command that I don't need to search for WHOOO hooo...
SO I did a clean install and Stepping it up to make my life better and sitting there without looking @ the man pages waiting till slack is up, getting back my bittorent running as soon as possible cause I lost all what I was downloading
IM @ work again so back to helping me out
Here is my /etc/fstab
/dev/hda2 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda5 /swap ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda1 /fatc ntfs noauto,user,ro,umask=0222 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /fatd vfat auto, user,umask=0277 1 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
did some chom badboy:users /dev/hdb1
I don't want to add badbay as a group root or what ever its called....
just wanna be able to have this user to be able to access the drives and be able to mount and everything else I can do the old su
