I am completely new to Unix. I want to access my friends file whose
ls -l gives:
-r--r----- 1 root filename
Note that I am not the root user and just a normal user. My question is how to read this file?
I tried to change the ownership by using
chown and change the permission using
chmod but it gives
Operation not permitted.
Outputs of variuos commands :
$ ls -l total 4 -r--r----- 1 root abacus 373 Nov 12 19:19 abacus $ groups Wayne $ cat abacus abacus: Permission Denied
