I have run into a roadblock which hopefully someone can help me to unravel. All has been working fine for a while up to now when I have tried to add some new music into my mp3 share. Whatever I try, I get insufficient priveliges warnings when trying to move a folder into the itunes music folder in /mp3. I have changed permissions on the mp3 folder so that users, groups & others all have read, write & execute but to no avail. I think the problem may be at the next level with the permissions on the itunes music folder itself but I can’t for the life of me figure out changing the permissions or indeed the ownership on that directory. here’s a snippet from the telnet session:

# cd /share/flash/data
# ls -l
drwxrwxr-x 3 admin everyone 4096 Aug 1 18:17 TV
drwxrwxr-x 5 admin everyone 4096 Jun 9 09:12 backups
drwxrwxr-x 3 admin everyone 4096 May 24 22:59 dropfolder
drwx
2 root root 16384 May 10 18:54 lost+found
drwxrwxrwx 6 admin everyone 4096 Jul 31 20:11 mp3
drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 4096 Aug 1 19:00 mt-daapd
drwxrwxr-x 3 admin everyone 4096 May 22 21:54 public
-rw
1 root root 64064 Aug 1 18:58 quota.user
-rw
1 root root 64064 Aug 1 18:57 quota.user~
# cd mp3
# ls -l
drwxrwxr-x 2 admin everyone 4096 Jul 28 10:02 Desktop Folder
drwxrwxr-x 4 admin everyone 4096 Aug 1 08:35 Traveling Wilburys
drwxr-xr-x 587 guest everyone 20480 May 21 22:27 iTunes Music
-rwxrw-r-- 1 admin everyone 7415729 May 14 21:27 iTunes Music Library.xml

I have tried all manner of combinations to access the itunes music directory but nothing seems to work:

# chmod go+w itunes music
chmod: itunes: No such file or directory
# chmod go+w iTunes Music
chmod: iTunes: No such file or directory
# chmod go+w iTunes_Music
chmod: iTunes_Music: No such file or directory
# chmod go+w itunes_music
chmod: itunes_music: No such file or directory

and I’m thinking that it’s the designation of that folder as ‘guest’ that’s casuing me the problems, but how do I fix it…?

Any pointers gratefully received!
cheers, andy
