Permissions.....


Ok, Every time I try to move a file or change just about anything I get "Access denied" or "You do not have permission" I know the root password and I have typed su in the console to give me access but nothing seems to work. I have Red Hat 8.0.

All I really want to do is Copy Flash plugin files and copy them into the mozilla/plugins/ directory.

Thanks,
SliX

when you do the "su" command, are you then copying the files over via that same console? are you putting the plugins to the mozilla folder in your home directory? you should be able to acces that. are you forgetting that it's a hidden directory w/ a "." in front? do "ls -a" in your home dir and you'll see all those hidden files and folders.

I don't know if that'll help... hope it does

good luck

-Adam

This is a command you issue in command prompt, when you su to root locate the flash files you need to copy and issue
chmod 755 filename1 filename2 ....
