HOWTO: Change umask, permissions, ownership etc. of a folder using bindfs

Posted 11-01-2011 at 05:43 PM by kribor

I find myself coming back to a situation where I want to be able to control who files should be created as (user or group) and which permissions the files should have in a specific folder.

Okay, I've just got through another flamewar, so I decided to write a some info about answering questions without wasting too much time in the process. The content is based on personal experience, my own point of view, and isn't supposed to be absolute truth or something. I also don't expect someone to agree with me. Recommendations are written in random order, and are supposed to prevent wasting too much time typing replies, or breaking your keyboard too quickly.
Beware! Some people probably...

There's a website, called, "The Linux Counter," where you can register as a Linux user and also register the information about your system. No mailing lists or anything, it seems, if you choose to register. Once you register, you get a cool little Linux logo, showing you as a registered Linux user, with your registered user number.

From the website, you can see a breakdown by country, state and city, as to how many registered Linux users there are in each place. Also, you...

LQ should come up with a smarter way of ranking users

Posted 05-29-2009 at 06:39 AM by rob124

I would have OKed it if only 'Addict' was used.
Most new users (even old users, and indeed everyone) know and believe that 'Gurus' are well knowledgeable, experienced...
