a few little quirks.....


So i've got a few wierd things I'd like to get to the bottom of.

-ifconfig shows "...TX bytes:0" this can't be right.

-mozilla, and all k apps don't seem to remember things
im thinking that i've got screwed up permisions laying around.
are there any broad strokes i can make to with chmod and chown?
just to get staightened out.

thats good for now.

thanks

Wouldn't that depend on the interface you're looking at?

If it's permissions (like having copied mozilla
from roots home to the users) try
su -
cd /home/<user>
find * exec chown <user> {} \;
find .* exec chown <user> {} \;

Cheers,

the ifconfig was from eth0, there is no eth1.
I do have a loopback interface that shows packets on TX and RX
(and everthing works fine as far as networking/internet goes)
-----------------------------
I did :
# chown -R user.root /home/<user>
# chmod -R 774 /home/<user>
...after installing my apps, should that have covered it?

are there device files for my eth0 device?
where in /dev do i look.
my card uses the tulip driver if that matters.
is there any way to trace what files a process or program uses?

Good question ... :) ...I've never wondered
about that myself ...

cool its always just that simple.

bad idea to
# chmod -R 660 /dev (and then fix the dirs that now cant be searched)
?

oh and what if i want to chmod all files one way and dirs another with -R?
