Tried everything I could understand without another day searching the internet and Google as well.
I need to edit the etc/hosts file.
Unable to take ownership of “hosts” file, ergo unable to edit it.
I tried to take ownership, but the online explanations assume we all have a few years of Linux geekinese under our belts. When I see:
search results like “chown name filename”
I see “chown” as the command, then “name” and I ask, whose name? and “filename” I get.
I tried the name “Pure-1” which is the name Pure was set up under, is login, and I thought was owner, but Pure says no.
~Can’t edit it not permitted.
~chown most online suggestions fails with "changing ownership of ‘hosts’ : Operation not permitted".
In Pure, is there a way to bypass the paranoid rent-a-cop at every turn?
I hope everything isn’t command line driven.
