    Agent deployment from EM to Linux agent failing pre-req checks

      Trying to deploy the agent software from EM to a Linux host running Oracle Enterprise Linux version 5.8 I am failing one of the pre-requisite checks indicating that the root / is not owned by the root. From the install log

      INFO: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      INFO: Checking AgentBaseDirCheck
      This is a prerequisite condition to test whether the agent base directory is owned by the install user, all the parent directories are owned by either the install user or root user and the root directory (that is '/') is owned by root user.

      Not sure how the / can not be owned by root.
