Re: ntsec environment variable
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I'm part of the 'Power Users' group, but not the Administrators'
(although it's my computer and I have Admin access, this is just my
regular user account). After `chown -R dale.None .` and `chmod -R
u+rwx .` (executed in ~) my home directory permissions are:
[dale:~]$ ls -ln
drwxrwxrwx 2 1000 513 0 Apr 16 00:55 bin/
drwxrwxrwx 3 1000 513 0 Apr 16 00:41 learn_c/
drwxrwxrwx 2 1000 513 0 Apr 17 07:22 src/
drwxrwxrwx 2 1000 513 0 Apr 18 03:02 tmp/
And after `umask 022` a new file has the permissions of:
[dale:~/tmp]$ umask 022
[dale:~/tmp]$ touch test.file
[dale:~/tmp]$ ls -ln
- -rwxrwxrwx 1 1000 513 0 Apr 18 03:10 test.file*
Here's my /etc/passwd (with the passwd field edited):
[dale:~]$ cat /etc/passwd
Dale::1000:513:Christopher Dale Campbell,SNIPPED:/home/Dale:/bin/sh
IWAM_CAMPBELL::1004:513:Launch IIS Process
Supedawg::1002:513:Dad and Kelly,SNIPPED:/home/Supedawg:/bin/sh
Note sure if any of this info helps. All of the permissions appear
to be the same. Should I execute the chown and chmod commands logged
in as Administrator?
