was wondering about permissions however don't know enough about setting them. Know perl pretty well but rusty on unix commands.
Interesting why root root
if I am reading corectly the permission for this file 644 which is not good.
Pulling out my hair and books again hmmm I see about the root root it means I am logged in as root user under the root.
PS Thank you tremendously.
Hi, the permissions of /etc/network/interfaces are correct.
Which editor do you use? Try vi on the commandline or an editor like pico or nano at the commandline.
