I just installed debian 2.2.19.
I can list directories. But am not allowed to look into any files or config.
I am returned "Permission denied" in most every file entery.
When trying to look at "xf86config" I am receiving and err 111 message.
Sounds like you're trying to do "root things" as a non-root user. Log in
as root (or use one of the other methods for doing "root things") in
order to do these things. As a normal user, you'll be restricted in
quite a few ways (unlike in the Windows (pre-2K/XP) world, where anyone
sitting down at the computer can accidentally infect/delete/hose some
important system file).
You don't want to stay logged in as root; that presents unnecessary
risks to your system. Only be root when you need to do root things.
