    update the ACL's

    On my computer ive got my hard drive partitioned into some ext3 partitions. I enabled ACL's and user_xattr. How can I update the ACL's and what are some uses of user_xattr?

    To manage ACLs, use the getfacl and setfacl commands. To see the exact usage, check the manpage, but for example:
    setfacl -m u:apache:x ~
    User XAttrs don't really have much practical uses right now. It's mainly if you want to do something exciting yourself. In any case, they're managed with the getxattr and setxattr commands.
