I tried to change the ownership of two folders with the following commands:
chown -v lfs $LFS/tools chown -v lfs $LFS/sources
At the time the commands succeeded as I saw a message saying the change had been done.
Sometime later I checked to see if
lfs was indeed the owner, with this command:
sudo ls -ld /mnt/LFS/sources
and got the following answer:
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 fev 24 17:39 /mnt/LFS/sources
Thinking that I might have to repeat the
chown command, i did:
sudo chown -v lfs $LFS/tools ownership of '/tools' retained as lfs
Now, as far as I understand it, have
chown telling me that the owner is
ls -ls saying that the owner is
The folders are in a external drive disk with a ext4 file system.
