Hi all. can someone please explain this to me: /etc/devfs.conf # examples, blah # my devices/perms/etc perm mdctl 0660 own mctl user:operator [/code] I can create md* without any issues, but if I add this: [code] perm md* 0660 own md* user:operator --OR-- perm md0 0660 own md0 user:operator [/code]
it defaults to root:operator when I do say mdconfig -a -t vnode -f example.iso , and I'm unable to mount it without either becoming root, or mounting it with sudo, which I thought was the point of devfs.conf in the first place (to set userland permissions on devices so that non root users could mount/dismount them if needed)? is thier some undocumented <blah>.conf or sysctl variable that I'm just not finding, or is devfs.conf fundamentally broken for 'dynamic' devices (ie: it can't understand wildcards, or even handle me plugging in or creating another device, i.e:USB keyfob , or mounting a ISO image, while the machine is up and running)? thanks! _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
