Răspuns: chmod behaviour

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Sure,

Here's the input:

[root@core2duo ~]# mkdir my_directory
[root@core2duo ~]# ll -d my_directory/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Nov  4 08:16 my_directory/

[root@core2duo ~]# chmod g+s my_directory/
[root@core2duo ~]# ll -d my_directory/
drwxr-sr-x 2 root root 4096 Nov  4 08:16 my_directory/

[root@core2duo ~]# chmod 0755 my_directory/ #set perm in octal mode
[root@core2duo ~]# ll -d my_directory/ #no effect on SGIT bit
drwxr-sr-x 2 root root 4096 Nov  4 08:16 my_directory/

[root@core2duo ~]# chmod g-s my_directory/ #set perm in symbolic mode
[root@core2duo ~]# ll -d my_directory/ #get back to the execution bit
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Nov  4 08:16 my_directory/

I'm confused cuz up until now I assumed the octal and symbolic mode are interchangeable and here is an example where I rather have to use a single mode to get to expected result.

You should probably post a transcript with:

  ls -ld my_directory

before and after each chmod command just so people can see exactly what
the permission state is.
