ubuntu linux - write issue in system file dir
Posted on 2011-09-24
I'm installing an app on linux. Not very good at it.
I managed to successfully install the program on the desktop and it worked, but then realized I had installed it in the wrong place.
I needed to install it in /opt
which is in the system files. it seemed to install ok, but when I go to launch the app
I get an error
dministrator@SVN:/opt/csvn$ bin/csvn console
Running CSVN Console...
wrapper | ERROR: Could not write pid file /opt/csvn/bin/../data/run/csvn.pid: Permission denied
I assume this is a system level permissions issue. I messed with the folder perms, but no luck.
any advice appreciated
