Re: need a tutorial on setuid

I can't see how dd could have been the culprit. dd is a block for block copy and does not modify the data as it copies. I don't doubt that the setup bits were changed, but I would suggest that you look for what really changed those bits to prevent a future occurrence.

Greetings all;

The man page for chmod has obviously been edited to remove all useful

My reason asking is it appears that dd, when making a clone of an sd
card, seems to have removed all setuid info from the executable files.
So I'm apparently going to have to restore things as the lack is
