Permitions to groups
OK, I think it looks natural, but after 72 in front of my monitor, I'm stuck! :scratch:

I want to change the rights for a directory for some specific groups. That means that:

for the directory "setup"
the group "super" has "r-w-x" rights
the group "power" has "r-x" rights
the group "idiots" has "r" rights...

I know that I have to play with chmod and chown commands but I'm completely stuck!! :cry: :cry:

Any help? Plz!!!

I know, I am :newbie:

To change the group ownership
chgrp groupname
To change permissions
chmod g+? to add a group permission where ? is r, w, or x
chmod g-? to subtract a group permission where ? is r, w, or x

Hi, thanx for the reply!

Well, this is not excactly what I wanted to do. I want to give different rights to the same directory depending on the group that tries to access it.

Did I made it any clearer?

root would have to own the file
the group owner would have to be power with r-x
and idiots would be included in other
so it would look like

group owner

You can do this by
chown root [dir]
chgroup power [dir]
chmod 754 [dir]
