Nothing quite like experiencing chown -R virtual:virtual /. instead of chown -R virtual:virtual ./ Looks like I'm going to be busy for a while. [crying]

Oh my..

I guess a chown -R root root / will fix most things and then doing such for each dir in /home.

The install is pretty much hosed, there are certain scripts that you wouldn't want to have root permissions etc that I don't want to waste the time with. And it wasn't every file, after about 5 seconds I started wondering what was taking so long.

I'm a bit late to the party, but how's this:

You got chowned! [wink]

I'm probably going to hell for that.
