/root owner and group

Looking around a fresh install and I noticed that /root has group and ownership different than I am used to seeing. The group and owner are both set to the user that I created during the install, rather than root/root as I am used to. I’ve changed them on my system, but wanted to make it known.

Thanks for reporting. This will be fixed in the next release.

all users should run as su:

find /root -type d -exec chmod -R 755 {} \;
chown root:root -R /root

Well running that as sudo just gives me a long list of “operation not permitted”.

well there’s only 1 file in /root and it’s called install.txt
@Beardedgeek72 I did
cd /
sudo su
then ran the 2 commands fernando posted
OK

Exactly. When I ran as root it worked, not when I ran with sudo.

This command seemed to work correctly for me.

Thanks.
