Fixing Permissions?

I tried to follow the advice concerning permissions and installed fix_permissions.sh to /sdcard. But when I run it (as su, of course), it counts from 1 to 28 and every single output line is
"No such file or directory".

Thus apparently it does not fix anything at all. Is that normal? What can be done about it?

That is what I shortened with "as su".

I had version 1.19.3 installed with Installer v. 7.2. But thanks to your hint, I installed it *again*, and now fix_permissions worked! No idea why, maybe busybox did not have root rights before being installed again?

Now fix_permissions claims to have fixed heaps of stuff, but when I run it a second time (immediately, without leaving the shell) it claims *again* to fix lots of permissions. Running it after reboot makes it again list an impressive amount of fixes. Very odd.

you may try to mount system partition writable and then run fixperm and then remount readonly

or your file system may be corrupted and you may have to run fsck.ext2 within recovery console...

might be usefull: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...68&postcount=1
