HOWTO Manipulate POSIX ACL on Linux 2.6

This article was first written in March 2006 for the BeezNest technical
website (http://glasnost.beeznest.org/articles/330).

Disclaimer: The purpose of this article is not to explain the purpose of POSIX ACL.

To manipulate POSIX ACL on Debian, with a 2.6 kernel (starting from Sarge):

  • install package acl
  • edit /etc/fstab to add option acl to the mountpoints where you want to use ACL
  • play with getfacl and setfacl
