Re: [suse-security] fs corrupted - permissions altered
my suggestion would be to either install another linux hard drive and
boot from it, then mount the other hard drive and change the permissions
or to use any of the micro linux (floppy) or distros (bootable cd) to
accomplish the same.
I don't use suse on a regular basis past just installing and playing
with an older version, but I do use redhat and gentoo every day for 5+
years. Speaking from RH experience, their installation disk has a way
to boot for repair and chroot the hard drive. You can then mount it
writable and make the repairs. I would assume almost all distro's have
a similar feature.
