    Hi,

    Newbie here!
    I have installed Firefly on an NSLU2 server but have a problem. How do I enable editing of the .conf file from the command interface? I get ‘permission denied’. From what I understand I need this in order to edit the web based configuration page.

    Thanks
    Shaun

    Please at least provide some details of what you tried. E.g., what did you try to edit it (command line, Gnome text editor, …)? If command line, did you use sudo?

    Well, sorry, but I have to ask again… “can’t edit the file” is so unclear…

    * Does it give you an error message that tells you you can’t edit it?
    * If so, what’s the exact words of the error message?
    * Or did it complain only after editing, when trying to save the changes?
    * In that case, what exactly did it say?
    * Or don’t you know how to use vi? vi is a bit complicated, you can’t just starting to type ahead (press i to go into insert mode, do the changes, press escape to get back to command mode, type :w to save the changes, then :q to quit the editor), nano or pico may be easier to use editors.
