I installed SCO 18.104.22.168 from the November 1994 Compaq SmartStart CD.
(This was a little peculiar in that in the fancy GUI mode I was in a big
"loop" that wouldn't let me install; ended up going to some non-GUI menu
to do it.)
Anyhow, several months later, I discovered that although I (as root)
could do everything I needed to do, all attempts to delegate privileges
(account management, etc.) failed. Upon examination, many files have
wrong permissions/ownership etc. (per fixperm -n ...).
So I've been advised to run fixperm and let it fix everything. 2 questions:
1) Has anyone out there done this and is there anything I particularly
need to be careful about?
2) (Curiosity) Is this the typical result of a Smartstart installation or
did I do it wrong?
Respond here or email me.
Thanx In Advance,
