I ran the following command by mistake:
sudo chmod 744 ~/..
and I can't boot my macbook anymore, it freezes with the brown screen and ajax-style spin. What should I do to make it work normally again?
a) Disk utility (repair permissions) - didn't help b) resetpassword -> reset ACL and permissions for home directory - didn't help.
I booted in the recovery mode, opened the terminal and went to "/Volumes/Macintosh HD". Yes, this was the disk (or should I say "path") I changed the permissions for.
How do I restore them now? And what are they were?
I was able to restore it by going to the terminal in recovery mode and performing:
chmod 777 "/Volumes/Macintosh HD/"
But I believe that
777 is too much. What's the default umask for
I don't know why it worked since
