Issue with /home/guest/ from rootcopy

Post#1 by blablotin » 08 Jul 2011, 10:02

Hi

I notice that every files copied from rootcopy always belong to root on porteus V01 32 bit. and it is not the case in porteus 64bit

This mean that I cannot launch openoffice.org with guest account.

I just ran a test (put two files in rootcopy and assigned one to guest, one to root, in my /home/guest directory), and ownership was passed on through rootcopy.

Are you by chance running off a FAT or NTFS device with your 32-bit install, and a linux partition for 64-bit?

Or, maybe this is another LST issue, as those seem to be all the rage today :)
Please take a look at our online documentation, here. Suggestions are welcome!

Please confirm:

1) Folder/files have guest permissions in rootcopy.
2) You are NOT running on a FAT32 partition.

In fact on booth system, I am using ntfs, and owner is root.
However, on 32bit edition, only root can write, delete and modify the folder/home/guest/.openoffice3 whereas in 64bits edition, both root ang guest can modify, creat and delete the content of /home/guest/.openoffice3 and openoffice can be run by guest.

The 64 bits edition is doing it wrong!
Porteus is proud of the FASTEST KDE ever made.....(take akonadi, nepomuk and soprano out and you will have a decent OS).
The Porteus Community never sleeps!
