Permission Denied when trying to create ISO

Post#1 by mlhend2002 » 01 Jan 2013, 14:33

Hello again,

I was just wondering if it is something I am doing,I am fairly new to Linux, or a bug, but when I try to create an iso I get Permission denied. I am running under root account.

root@porteus:/mnt/sdb1/porteus# make_iso.sh /home/guest/downloads/proteus.iso-su: ./make_iso.sh: Permission denied

Thanks,

Mark

Make the make_iso.sh executable with this command

Code: Select all

chmod +x ./make_iso.sh

@mlhend2002

please post output of 'ls -al' when in /mnt/sdb1/porteus folder.
also

Code: Select all

grep showexec /proc/mounts
you could also try:

Code: Select all

sh make_iso.sh
