Re: permissions in /sbin

Is this really an okay arrangement for the contents of /sbin?

Sure it is. Only root may modify the files and everyone may read and
execute them. What did you expect?

Fair enough. I just figured that since /sbin keeps those programs that only root can run, having the x switch for each seemed promiscuous.

Still learning ... :)
