slackware owners and groups

I was making a package and I typed
chown -R root.root /usr/
, when I should had typed:
chown -R root.root ./usr/
Can someone post the list with user&group for the /usr directory?

From my desktop machine:
find /usr ! -user root ! -group root -printf '%u.%g %p\n'
lp.sys /usr/bin/lppasswd
daemon.daemon /usr/bin/at
bin.bin /usr/man/man3/gdbm.3.gz
bin.bin /usr/info/
bin.bin /usr/include/gdbm.h
so it's not that bad but it strongly depends what particular packages were installed on your box.

Hah, I've done similar things

There was a post a couple weeks ago about restoring permissions for the root directory. The same trick _should_ work here, possibly with a couple modifications. See:
