I'm getting the following 2 errors when running saveit

The stick shows up as SDA1 and is owned by root, but "others" have read/write permission.

Ideas ??



Hi Ed,

Here is what it does:
`tar zcvf pskmailperm.tar.gz pskdownload Download
pskmailrc.pl .evolution qrg mail rflinkusers getit.pl saveit.pl
netconfig.pl rflinkserver.pl arq.pm`;

`tar zcvf
fldigi.tar.gz .fldigi/fldigi.def .fldigi/fldigi.log .fldigi/fldigi.status 
.fldigi/freqanalysis.csv .fldigi/macros.mdf`;

if (-d "/mnt/removable") {
        `cp pskmailperm.tar.gz /mnt/removable`;
        `cp fldigi.tar.gz /mnt/removable`;

Translated it tries to create two files, one for pskmail
(pskmailperm.tar.gz) and one for fldigi (fldigi.tar.gz). It then tries
to move the created files to your usb stick (if its there).
You can test it, just copy the commands one by one and paste in a
terminal. That should show you where you have the problem.
This: "mv : cannot create regular file '/mnt/removeable' : permission
denied" shows that its not allowed to move the archives to your usb
stick (check those permissions).
As for the tar error you could see if eiher of pskmailperm.tar.gz or
fldigi.tar.gz gets created in your home folder (if so then the
permissions are what you need to fix).

Thanks for the ideas Per. I'll try them out later this afternoon. I would like to have the client up and running in time for the family camping trip later this month.
