Someone helping me install PGI Workstation installed as root. Another person suggested using the following command to fix it:
“chown -R myname:mygroup /usr/pgi”
I may not know alot about Linux, but don’t think this will work. Many files and directories are not owned by root, e.g. “ls -la /usr/pgi/linux86/6.1” gives
drwxr-xr-x 4 909 1004 4096 Mar 2 16:45 bin
for the bin directory. I doubt if I should be the owner of files and directories such as these!! Since the person who installed it didn’t leave me a copy of the download, can I fix it by individually editing only the ownership of files and directories owned by root or is it necessary to completely reinstall?
