DragonFly users List (threaded) for 2008-05
I screwed up the owner/group settings of the /dev/* files, while as
root in the /dev folder doing:
#chown -R john:users *
*I was kinda sleep deprived, so I only noticed it after pressing the
enter key, that I was in the wrong directory
as a "fix" I did:
#chown -R root:wheel *
so now my whole /dev, belongs to root and group wheel. The system -
that is the stuff I use - still works, but I really want to bring back
the owner/group settings of the /dev directory as it should be, but I
have no clue how to do this without completely reinstalling the system
or chown'ing the files in the /dev 1 by 1, which is even more work.
Is there a way to roleback owner/group settings (I know the filesystem
isn't journaling,) ?
Or is it possible to copy the contents of the install cd /dev to the
disk /dev to fix this, and if so how?
Thanks in advance
P.S. I know I did something very lame and it's even lamer that I have
no clue how to fix it, so I don't need trollers telling me - something
I already know.
