Re: Strange + sign after permissions on all files and directories
when I configured the config file for the kernel 2.6
I notice some options which enhance the permission
scheme: may be the + comes from there.

I have a Debian machine that I noticed has some strange behaviour. I
noticed that when I do a listing of the files on the machine it appears
drwxr-xr-x+ 102 root root 8192 Jan 5 09:54 etc
drwxr-xr-x+ 2 root root 6 Apr 25 2002 floppy
drwxr-xr-x+ 44 root root 4096 Jan 2 17:10 home
drwxr-xr-x+ 2 root root 6 Apr 25 2002 initrd
drwxr-xr-x+ 6 root root 8192 Dec 29 15:34 lib
drwxr-xr-x+ 2 root root 6 Feb 8 2002 mnt
All files seem to have a strange + sign at the end of the permissions
which would normally mean Access Control List in Solaris. I noticed
also that when I try to run crontab -e as root it denies me access
You (root) are not allowed to use this program (crontab)
See crontab(1) for more information
I am wondering if it has something to do with the + sign and some
sort of Access Control list denying root access? How can I get
it so that this Debian machine no longer displays the + sign next
to any directory or file.
Any immediate help would be appreciated.
