asyle.conf permission denied

I'm trying to install minecraft forge, which I've done before, but for some reason when I run install.sh I get this error:


~/code/forge1.4.6-controller$ ./install.sh

MCP refuses to be run as root, so that's not an option. The file is there, and I haven't opened it or anything. The permissions on it are -rw-rw-r--  1 root  admin, like most everything else in the folder. What am I doing wrong?


This is on forge

Something is not allowing your script to remove that file, whatever way you are running python doesnt have permission to remove it.


Possibly have the folder/file open elseware?

I do Forge for free, however the servers to run it arn't free, so anything is appreciated.

Figured it out, somehow the owner for mcp/conf was root instead of me. I chown -R'ed that (-R was neccicary, there was another subfolder with the same problem) and got another error with RXTXcomm.jar, which I had really messed up permissions for that I fixed. Now it works.


Not sure how mcp/conf was messed up, I just downloaded it and then ran install.sh.
