    Open a terminal and read man chmod for a while. When you've finished pulling your hair out, google for info on chmod. Then change the permissions. I'm assuming you wanted to know how to change them, you don't actually ask for anything.

    "It needs 644 permissions" exactly means I need to change them.

    I tried:
    chmod examples that don't work or make sense. Nice, but no good to me.
    chmod - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Code:
    chmod a+r Home/.dmrc
    Result:

    No such file or directory

    Whereis /.dmrc ~ I got a list a mile long.

    Code:
    ls -l

    I don't understand why you're specifying the file path as home/ .dmrc, you've got a space there. Since you're in /home/steve/ just .dmrc ought to work for a filepath if the file exists. So if you have the file try chmod 644 .dmrc.

    Can you spell it out for me exactly ? I am not getting it. I have tried several things already and it has not worked.

    You are correct, the .dmrc file is already existing.

    This, and the loop back laptop crap from my most recent posts, is getting on my nerves. I think it is giving me an ulcer.

    My knowledge of linux is very limited. I use it for work everyday.

    My deepest thanks for your helping !

    Open a terminal, it should be in /home/steve already. type
    Code:
    su
    enter the root password. Then type
    Code:
    chmod 644 .dmrc
    Press enter and you're done.
    If you then type
    Code:
    ls -l
    you should see a line beginning with
    Code:
    -rw-r--r--.

    The way I understand your first post, the directory requires 644 permissions. The files within may differ.
    To make the output human readable use the -h switch.
    Code:
    ls -lh
    What is dreamlinux? From your other thread, I thought it was a distro.

    What is dreamlinux? From your other thread, I thought it was a distro.
    DreamLinux is a distro. A very good one. Low in fat.

    I am just annoyed that a distro cannot be created, then simply be upgraded from the cradle to the grave with only a single install. I am mad I gotta reinstall it every time a new platform version comes out. When MME came out, we had to reinstall over Works Edition. When MMGL came out, we had to reinstall over MME. When DE cam out, we had to reinstall over MMGL. With 4.0, you gotta reinstall over DE, and with 4.0 beta, you need to reinstall over 4.0 Alpha. Which is fu**ng retarded.

    In between all these reinstalls, DreamLinux IS a rolling upgrade. I am asking why Nelson cannot just rig it so the major structural changes [like from 2.1 to 2.2 to 3.0 to 3.1, 3.2. 3.3, 3.4,, 3.5 to 4.0 Alpha cANNOT JUST BE DONE VIA WGET. These 4 represent 4 completely different operating systems. The platform is NOT the same at all.

    Thank you dude !
