I kinda screwed up the /etc directory by running:
sudo chmod 417 /etc
Leaving me unable to use sudo:
sudo: can't open /etc/sudoers: permission denied. sudo: no valid sudoers sources foundm quitting
Ive been trying to fix it via recovery mode but i'm not sure to what mode I should set it. (I know sudoers is 0440, but this doesnt fix it because /etc is still messed up.)
Oh and for the future, how do i add lines to files in etc without screwing up the permissions of etc?
Thanks in advance, Joeri.
P.S. Im running in Virtual box if that makes a difference.
Edit: Booting in recovery and running:
root@joeri-VirtualBox:/# chmod 755 etc chmod: changing permissions of 'etc' : read-only file system root@joeri-VirtualBox:/# cd etc root@joeri-VirtualBox:/etc# ls -ld drw-rw-rwx 139 root root 12288 2012-04-19 16:29
Doesnt change the permissions of etc. Doing the same on a self created folder on the desktop does, so chmod is working, just not on etc.
