I am using mandrake 9.1. I can share a folder without any problems and I even get the permissions that I want set up and everything works fine. But about a half hour i quit using it the permissions for the group user gets changed back to read only. I have tried resetting the permissions several times but it keeps reverting back to read only. I have changed the permissions at the command line and in KDE. I have 2 boxes running mandrake doing this. I have one box running redhat and it is fine. Any suggestions?
this will be down to msec, which will monitor a list or files, directories etc.. and force certain standard attributes upon it. you can read the documentation about how to either customize it, or just remove it completely. However, it only operates on directories with system related functionality, which should not be shared anyway, so i would advice using a different non-critical directory instead.
well yes it's very system related. i'd suggesting putting it somewhere such as /var/stuff etc... i'd guess that what msec is doing there is making all directories in /home owned by the corresponding owner (looked up via /etc/passwd) and setting it as such, and setting it as root if no one else is listed to own it.
thank you for information. I will try it and see if that works. I went to lunch and thought it over and was thinking the same thing. For some reason it didnt click what was going on until then. msec is problably looking at the folders in the home directory and setting the permissons so that only the owner has full control and setting everyone else to read. Thanks for the info and your patience.
