FDUTILSCONFIG(8)            System Manager's Manual           FDUTILSCONFIG(8)



NAME
       fdutilsconfig - configure the suid bit of fdmount

SYNOPSIS
       fdutilsconfig

DESCRIPTION
       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.

FILES
       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.

NOTE
       This script was written exclusively for the Debian GNU/Linux  distribu-
       tion.  It is not a part of the upstream fdutils sources.

AUTHORS
       fdutilsconfig  was  adapted  by  Anthony Fok <fokaATdebian.org> from the
       gnuplotconfig script written by Tibor Simko <simkoATdebian.org>.
