I am using Exim as a local mail agent on 5.1-RELEASE-p10. Suddenly, I can no longer set the sticky bit on /var/mail...not even as root. The error is "operation not permitted" when I run 'chmod 1777 mail'...this error doesn't occur on 4.9-RC.
What could cause this type of behavior, the sudden inability to set that sticky bit? Further, if anyone has a pointer (beyond the manual) to information regarding this, I would be grateful for the pointer. I just finished a cvsup this weekend; but I am not sure when this became a problem because the machine is a testbed for 5.x and is often turned off for extended periods. Anyway, if anyone has a clue for me, I would appreciate it. I am guessing (utterly in the dark) that the culprit may be a chflags issue? Thanks in advance for any replies... fj _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
