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>.
