    I'm having all the same problems, but I'm using DSL-N, and I can't figure out how to check or change the group permissions.

    I can't figure out how to check or change the group permissions.
    Take a look at the man pages for following commands for changing permissions or ownership of files and directories:


    man chmod
    man chgrp
    man chown
    More on using the command line under linux can be found here: Learn the Linux command line. Write shell scripts.

    actually what I needed to do was add myself to gropu sound and group video in DSL-N. chmod/chown/chgrp wasn't what I needed, and there is plenty of help on the internet for that lol

    I figured out how to do it and it still didn't work.
