Oopsie chmod +x cat - Permission denied

edited May 1 in Machines

Hi All,

I'm a beginner running through the Starting Point - Oopsie Tutorial.

I've managed to get to be Robert but when I try the following commands:

export PATH=/tmp:$PATH
cd /tmp/
echo '/bin/sh' > cat
chmod +x cat

I receive the following error:
/bin/sh: 4: chmod: Permission denied

Any hints on what I'm doing wrong here?

Thanks in advance for any help.

  • Seemed to work when I ran it in the following order:

    cd /tmp/
    echo '/bin/sh' > cat
    chmod +x cat
    export PATH=/tmp:$PATH

  • oh no, it doesnt work for me
