Failsafe With A Writeable Filesystem [SOLVED]

Postby jackmason on Thu Feb 14, 2013 2:27 pm

I have apparently screwed up my home directory by changing the permissions on it. I cannot boot into a writeable filesystem so I can change it back. The permission is currently drw-r--r-- and I believe I need to set it to drwxrwx-- but I cannot find a way to do that. It will not let me into the system. Do I just need to rebuild the system?

UPDATE: I rebuilt the system.

Have tried chmod 700 /home/username?

Tried that, but the file system is open as read-only. I need to get it as a writeable file system.
