A basic command and diagnostics shell script
Authored by: demmons65 on Sep 06, '07 06:04:14AM
I was able to run the script as advertised, at least after chmod'ing it. Are you running it from an admin account? I am but not as root. Strange.

A basic command and diagnostics shell script
Authored by: szedula on Sep 06, '07 01:20:53PM

On my system : ls -ld /var/log/system.log

produces:

-rw-r----- 1 root admin 53644 Sep 6 12:10 /var/log/system.log

my account is not in the "admin" group so I guess that's why I can't read the file without "sudo".
