Re: [1.7] Editing in /etc
> Fixed... I messed up the permissions in my /dev directory.
There may be issues with editing some files in /etc...
I think of /etc/hosts, OK... a symlink to a Windows file.
Editing it, you have to be careful with preserving its ownership
(including group) and permissions from the Windows point of view.
I have been using the cygwin tools from a Windows Admin cmd:
c:\cygwin\bin\chown SYSTEM:SYSTEM hosts
c:\cygwin\bin\getfacl hosts.bak | c:\cygwin\bin\setfacl -f - hosts
