Question unable to setfacl in Ubuntu


I'm currently working on Ubuntu 10.04 kernel : 2.6.32-28

All i want to setfacl using the command :
setfacl -m u:guest:rw- /var/tmp/fstab

it errors out peration not supported .

It works fine in Fedora and RHEL ..
I did google out.. it says about mounting the dir using acl paramater..
I'm confused.. can somebody help.

go to /etc/fstab and put in "acl,defaults" instead of just "defaults" wherever your /var filesystem is mounted. Then do a mount -a to remount it. This should allow /var to start using acls.
