    Changing permissions problem 2


    The instructions call for " /etc/resolv.conf must be accesible for read and write" for my chestnut-dialer project. I cd /etc and typed ls -l pppd and got this:

    franksnetwork:/home/frank# cd /etc
    franksnetwork:/etc# ls -l resolv.conf
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 31 2009-08-14 20:50 resolv.conf -> /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf
    franksnetwork:/etc#

    I am assuming I need to remove x permissions to usr, group and other. I tried this:

    chmod a-x pppd in the pppd directory and I keep displaying x unchanged as above. What am I doing wrong?

    /etc/resolv.conf is a symbolic link that points to the actual file. You have to check and if necessary change the permissions on /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf
