comment What are the root permissions for a file?
No, this applies to regular files as well. If it's marked executable for anyone, it'll be executable for root.

comment What are the root permissions for a file?
And it's technically not so much "You don't have permission to execute this file" as it's "as far as I know this isn't an executable file" but the filesystem didn't see a point in adding the distinction.

comment What are the root permissions for a file?
Note: The execution bit is checked for existence, not whether it's applicable to root - create a directory as your own user and chmod it to 700 - root will walk right in.

dos2unix will just clear out the ^Ms, it won't help with the ansi coding that got recorded.

Most likely the PAM subsystem, but impossible to answer conclusively without more information about your system than you've included in your question.

comment Why does the root user need sudo permission?
And besides, I've more than once accidentally started an admin-level command with sudo while I already was root, just because it's ingrained into my muscle memory...

Do nod try to mix binaries from different distribution versions. You'll wind up breaking lots of stuff.

comment service vs. systemctl scripts — which to use
Debian user, so can't answer for sure, but service foo start in debian works whether your init system is systemd or sysvinit or upstart; systemctl would likely not work if systemd isn't PID1.

comment symlink /home/username/Documenten tot 2nd partition?
Actually, I suspect your problem is the initial period -- ./home/nel/Documenten starts from the current directory rather than the filesystem root.
