unix command to linux command

Hello to everyone,

I'm trying to execute the following unix command in my Red Hat Linux 9 and the response that i get from linux is: "Operation not supported"
#setfacl -m user:apache:r-x /home/user1

Does anyone can give me a hand. Maybe the proper linux command...

Thanks in advance!

Red Hat 9 does not seem to support ACLs -- from the RH9 release notes:

Special Note: The ACL support added to the kernel in the first two
public beta releases proved to be unstable and caused the kernel to
regress. Red Hat has therefore removed that ACL support from the
kernel for Red Hat Linux 9. Kernel engineers will continue
work on improving the ACL support, which will be available in a future
release. The attr and acl packages needed to support ACLs are still
included to make it easier for users and developers who wish to test
ACLs. Red Hat may, at our discretion, provide ACL support for this
release of Red Hat Linux by means of an upgrade, if future testing
demonstrates that the ACL support has sufficiently improved in
check and see if RH ever released a kernel rpm with ACL support and if so install it. OIherwise, you'll probably need to recompile your kernel and/or compile a module to support ACLs. I don't know much at all about ACLs in Linux, so I can't help much more.
