fdutilsconfig - configure the suid bit of fdmount
The fdutilsconfig script provides an interactive way to configure the
suid bit of the fdmount(1) binary. It asks you some questions, give
you a hint if needed, and enters your choice to /etc/fdmount.conf file.
When upgrading the Debian fdutils package, the suid bit information
stored in /etc/fdmount.conf is used to tell the new fdmount binary to
keep your old suid bit settings.
The script makes use of the suidmanager Debian package, if it is
installed. If the script cannot find it, it manipulates the suid bit
directly via `chmod u+s' command.
fdutilsconfig reads and writes the configuration from
/etc/fdmount.conf. This file is usually created when the fdutils pack-
age is installed for the first time. Please don't edit
/etc/fdmount.conf manually! Use fdutilsconfig instead.
This script was written exclusively for the Debian GNU/Linux distribu-
tion. It is not a part of the upstream fdutils sources.
fdutilsconfig was adapted by Anthony Fok <fokaATdebian.org> from the
gnuplotconfig script written by Tibor Simko <simkoATdebian.org>.
