I have a user account on a friends computer, but the permissions are screwy.
I can use sudo commands. every time I log in via ssh, I get a message stating:
cannot find name for group ID 501
I have no idea what that means...
but when I view the other users of the home directory, I see the suspicious 501.
I just want my home directory to function normally so I can put my web pages up. is 501 a group or a folder? what is ll telling me here?
