Share access to single folder in user home dir?
I've searched for solutions and they seem to indicate I am doing this correctly. I'm using Fedora 13.
I use Dropbox. The target/sync directory is a directory in my home dir. This works fine.
I also have set up transmission-daemon. This uses a non-standard user, whose $HOME is /var/lib/transmission. This works fine too.
I am trying to have transmission watch a subdir of the dropbox dir in my home, but keep having permission issues.
Let's call my user Me, the transmission user transmission, and the dropbox/watch folder watch.
I created a group torrents, and added Me and transmission.
I chgrp watch to torrents, and chmod watch to 775.
I then ln -s /home/Me/dropbox/watch /var/lib/transmission.
If I look at the UGO for target and link they look correct:
775 Me torrents /home/Me/dropbox/watch
775 transmission transmission /var/lib/transmission/watch
When I try to ls or cd to /var/lib/transmission/watch as user transmission I get permission access denied.
Am I doing something wrong? Is there a special treatment of /home that blocks this? If for no other reason than understanding the basics I'm trying to use this method rather than setfacl.
