Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 225085
chmod o+x won't work on work on files exported by netatalk
Last modified: 2016-07-26 19:46:20 EDT
Description of problem:
The execute bit is filtered out in netatalk 2.0.3 when chmodding to set the
execute bit for user, group or other. This was fixed in netatalk's CVS after
the 2.0.3 release.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Mount a netatalk volume with Mac OS X, and do a chmod, then check to see if the
result is correct.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find an Apple running Mac OS X
2. Configure the netatalk server by adding the following type of entry to
(note that the options:upriv is required, or no unix permissions work at all)
3. From OS X, run 'touch foo ; chmod 755 foo ; ls -l foo'
-rw-rw-r-- 1 adevries adevries 0 Jan 28 15:19 foo
-rwxr-xr-x 1 adevries adevries 0 Jan 28 15:19 foo
One solution may be to just re-roll all of netatalk to the latest CVS release.
2.0.3 was released in May, 2005, but there have been many bug fixes, just not
another release number.
Attached is a patch for this one fix, though.
This is needed for afpfs-ng, an AFP client, to be useful.
