I just move my /home and /tmp to another partition and after that I cannot call the commands ll or ls -l without crashing the console. anything wrong? thank you

  • How did you moved /home to another partition? What steps did you used? Commented Sep 18, 2014 at 16:16
  • Can you use /bin/ls alone? Can you run ls /? Does this depend on which directory you run ls in? Did you move /home or your home directory? Please give us some more information.

after a lot of investigation I found out my /tmp folder had the wrong permissions. All I had to do was setting

sudo chmod -R 1777 /tmp
  • Wow, I accidentally did the same thing and this saved my life!
