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>.
