[tor-relays] Problems with nameservers and permissions

I've just started running a relay on Linux with Tor starting
automatically, however arm reported that "all nameservers have failed"
and, unsure what to do, I stopped Tor to go look up the problem. Then
when I tried to start it in Terminal again I'm greeted with this:
Jun 18 11:53:15.000 [warn] Couldn't open "/home/george/.tor/lock" for
locking: Permission denied
Jun 18 11:53:15.000 [err] set_options(): Bug: Acting on config options
left us in a broken state. Dying.
I've tried changing the permissions of the directory and the lock file
but it still says permission denied. What should I do?
I'm running Tor 0.2.3.17-beta-1 on Ubuntu 12.04.
Thank you for any help,
