Directory permssions - question
I have a question regarding directory permissions. In home temp directory I put txt.txt file.
root@machine1:/home/jsmith # ls -ld temp
drw-r--r-- 2 jsmith users 96 Aug 4 09:16 temp
Notice that I DO NOT have execute permissions on temp. But I have read permissions.
Why can't I do ls -l temp with jsmith? I have read permission but seems that it doesn't work without execute permission.
It will be:
root@machine1:/home/jsmith # ls -l temp
temp/txt.txt not found
