This is a double post, but I'm not getting much help at gentoo forums.
I ran chmod 755 * -R in the #$@Q!ing root, instead of somewhere else. Stupid. I realized it when it got to /proc and gave errors. I can SSH in, but I cannot su to root. I still have the root session open though.
I have many file permission problems, as being a newbie, I unfortunately set permissions on everything somehow to 777 (chmod -R 777 /). I believe I've done this from the root directory logged in as the root and now can't really do much at all but log in as another user.
I need to mainly change the ssh permissions, but obviously can't because it won't let me log in as the root user.
I'm trying to give a particular user superuser privileges, specifically the global write permissions that root hashe user in question must have these permissions without using sudo. It's a user that runs a service that is trying to write a file to a directory that it doesn't have write permissions on.
