I created a group 'developers'. Then i created 2 users dev1, dev2. Now i created a file 'test.txt'. Using chgrp and chown, i changed owner to dev1 and group to developers. So far so good. Now i logged in as dev2 and tried to change the permissions of this file as follows
chmod 440 test.txt
But it said, operation not permitted.
1) is it because dev1 is the owner ?
2) how can i make dev2 to use chmod ?
3) dev2 has complete access to test.txt file, but still it wasnt able to use chmod. How shall i know which other commands dev2 will not be able to use ?
Note: by mistake i put the wrong title. Sorry for that :-(
