I think a consistent approach to fixing the problem would be more helpful.

Is that ran in guest or root? And do I need to reboot?
chown -R guest:users /home/guest
root
you need to do it to your extracted module

Code: Select all

#chown -R guest:users /path/to/yourextractedmodule/home/guest
it's quite simple really
i happened to use mloop to check the module file ownerships, nothing more since (i think) mloop is read only,
sorry for not explaining every single detail

Confirmed.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ ls /mnt/loop/var/usm/local
libs.txt
guest@porteus:~$ rm /mnt/loop/var/usm/local/*
rm: cannot remove '/mnt/loop/var/usm/local/libs.txt': Read-only file system
guest@porteus:~$

mloop is just a script to ease mounting of file systems. It's the file system that is read-only as is reported in the above output.

Code: Select all

mount -o loop /path/to/module.xzm /mnt/loop
mount -o loop /path/to/savefile.dat /mnt/loop
You will get two different results with the above commands. One writable and one not. If you want to edit a module then unpack it.
