I'm a newbie of Linux and I got the Ygg Fall94 version.
I installed it successfully on my 486/40 with matsushita CD.
I changed all things that are written in the "Errata" file fetch at
ftp.yggdrasil,com and everything works except for passwd.
I mean: I setup my personal login, called leo, as they describe in the
manual, by copying the contents of guest directories in leo:
cp ~r guest ~leo
chown -R leo ~leo
I also edit my /etc/passwd to insert the new account:
I copied passwd from //system_cd/usr/bin to /bin
I set /usr/bin/passwd with chmod 4755
Now when I try to log as leo and set a passwd, it says to me:
Can't open /etc/ptmp after I re-type my passwd.
If I set the root passwd or I set leo passwd from root everything is ok.
It seems a problem of permission. Where I am wrong (or Ygg fails)?
In the errata no. 7 they say to change the following permission:
# chmod +x /usr/src/linux/drivers/pcsnd/configure /usr/src/linux/makever.s
When I give this command, Linux reply that
There are no such files or directory
Is there any spelling mistake in the Ygg F94 errata relating to this?
Thank you in advance.
