A linux administrator asked a question on how to recover from CHMODing the whole file system to 777. I had also screwed my system the same way two days earlier and no solution was insight (#chmod -R 777 / ) and my Boss was angry. A solution submitted blew me off. Very simple but it worked like magic!
I have Fedora Core 4 running. I will share the solution submitted with you guys so you know what to do when you are in the same predicament. It should work for all RPM systems.
