Thread: Can't change file permissions as root

    Default Can't change file permissions as root

    Hi,

    I just wanted to set some file permissions right. As root:

    Code:
    # chown -R kikinovak:users /home/kikinovak/Documents
    But all I get is a series of "Operation not permitted" errors. What's going on here? I tried this:
    Code:
    # find /home/kikinovak/Documents -type d -exec chmod 0755 \{} \;
    ... with the same strange errors.

    I'm puzzled. Any suggestions?

    On which files, exactly? Post a sample error with a single file.


    Is it, per chance, a reiserfs partition?

    Nah, I just found out. I completely forgot it's an NFS mount
