Let me just advise all of you out there who care anything for linux to never change the groups for the entire /etc folder, including sub-folders. Yup, this had some serious repercussions that made it to where I could not execute the sudo command or SSH, amongest a host of other commands. And on top of that, I couldn’t get in to change the permissions because I had never set a password for root, so it wouldn’t let me “su” into the console. So what I finally wound up doing was copying my password for my user account to root, got in and changed permissions back, rebooted, and it was all good, minus having to totally reinstall SSH, Shoutcast, and resetting permissions on /etc/sudoers. Just thought I’d share with all of you to never change permissions on the /etc folder. Leave it alone.
