Description Kervin Pierre 2001-04-25 22:07:25 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686) We are looking into using ACLs in our current setup ( comprising of Solaris,WinNT,IRIX and Linux) Linux is the only OS we support that does not natively have support for ACLs ( due to support reasons we can not recompile the kernel ). ACLs are sorely needed but Linux is preventing this. It would be very helpful if Redhat came with the ACL patch included the kernel. Or maybe have a kernel+ACL.rpm on the CD Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.? 2. 3.

becomes especially interesting in the light of Samba 2.2.0 which supports NT ACLs on ACL-enabled Linux systems...
Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2001-04-27 09:26:37 UTC
"the" ACL patch --> there are several ACL patches in existance. all need to change exported kernel interfaces and on-disk structures of filesystems. This makes it nearly impossible to merge such a patch until the it is clear which ACL is going to be used in future Linux kernels....
