My question is why can't I set permissions on a file in /root?
I'm stumped. This bash script run from cron as a non-root user
#!/bin/bash # mail_df.sh Charles M. Norton 01/07/2013 # Emails df to some folks. df | mail -s "Disk Usage For Public.somewhere.za.us" \ firstname.lastname@example.org
just started throwing out this error
df: /root/.gvfs: Permission denied`, after an upgrade to our Centos 6 list server.
OK, so I'm going to fix this by having this run as root out of cron, but for some reason I cannot set the permissions on .gvfs as root.
I tried this as a workaround. I cannot figure out why chmod 755 .gvfs does not work, when command is issued by root.
[root@public ~]# ls -lda .gvfs dr-x------. 2 root root 0 Feb 23 10:53 .gvfs
