    Question Adding "acl" option to "/etc/fstab"

    I had problem with cups printing daemon on Mandriva 2006.0. When I started the service, it complained about "unable to set ACLs : command not supported".
    According to internet, I should install ACL packages and test setfacl command.

    The output of setfacl: command not supported.

    I checked on my own kernel "/usr/src/.config" that all ACL related kernel settings are "Y" / enabled.

    Is it possible to mount partition using ACL option on "/etc/fstab"?

    The current entry for root/main partition is:
    /dev/hda1 / defaults

    How to change this defaults into "defaults + acl" ?
    Thank you.

    The fstab file holds only mount commands. And "default" is a descriptor for a group of those commands.

    If you simply add a string to "default" it won't work but maybe it breaks that particular mount command. Maybe your machine doesn't boot then anymore.

    I would read "man fstab" and "man mount". If this would be to confusing for you, I would revert to better descriptions for setting up this ACL.
