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
       package  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
       distribution.  It is not a part of the upstream fdutils sources.

AUTHORS

       fdutilsconfig was adapted by Anthony  Fok  <foka@debian.org>  from  the
       gnuplotconfig script written by Tibor Simko <simko@debian.org>.
