Re: Fixing file system privileges


I ended up with an awk one-liner (like those proposed here). I also had
to run MAKEDEV to fix device permissions, and then fix several files
manually (e.g. sshd will not start with keys being world readable). I
did an 'ls -lR /' on my home machine, then wrote a script (in rexx,
sorry, I'm not familiar with shell script and perl) to adjust access
rights based on the flags in the ls output. That should have got 99% of
files right. I also have a backup of /etc on tape.

Thanks for the help,
