[solved] System malfunctions after restore (wrong permissions)
My main system is Arch 64. I recently changed disks and rsynced over all partitions ("/" and "/boot") to the new one. In the process, I had to change permissions on files because I was doing it form another distro (Ubuntu).
I can login to X, but then most of things won't run.
I am sure it has something to do with permissions on file system because I changed them before on both / and /boot partitions using
I subsequently tried fixing it form Ubuntu using the same method:
sudo chown -R $USER:$USER <Mount Point>
and as mentioned, I am now able to login, but most of things still don't work (for example, sudo, terminal etc, etc).
root:root for /
juha:users for /home/juha
root:root for /boot
The problem is this is my private and work laptop so now I have to run it on livecd Ubuntu which is tedious...
