Description Björn Augustsson 2004-03-09 19:18:39 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1)

Description of problem:
The man page for mount doesn't document the "acl" mount option for
ext2/3 (and maybe others?), even though it mentions a vast amount of
other options. The tune2fs man page does mention it as a mount option.

I tried to setfacl a file and it failed with "Operation not supported". 

I guessed from reading the tune2fs man page that "mount -o remount -o
acl $FILESYSTEM" would fix things, and it did, but this should have
been in the mount man page. Probably in the setfacl man page as well.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man mount | grep -i acl


Actual Results:  no output.

Expected Results:  acls should have been mentioned.
