and have been using chown and chmod to fix them.
Here's the head-scratcher, I'm seeing the usual permissions on the directories that I copied over, but on the ones that were made (presumably) by ReadyDLNA
on the NAS boxes show a "+" that I can't clear.
Here's an actual screen scrape taken in the default `/c/data' directory:
drwxrwxrwx 7 nobody nogroup 4096 2013-04-08 12:00 .
drwxrwxrwx 6 root root 4096 2013-01-24 05:52 ..
drwxr-xr-x+ 11 myname users 4096 2013-03-13 18:54 Music
drwxr-xr-x+ 31 myname users 12288 2013-03-13 19:02 Pictures
drwxr-xr-x 4 myname users 4096 2013-04-08 12:00 TiVo
drwxr-xr-x 5 myname users 4096 2013-04-08 23:24 Video
drwxr-xr-x+ 5 myname users 4096 2013-03-13 19:05 Videos
IIRC the original user/group for the + directories was `nobody nogroup'. Precisely what is the "+" used for, and how can I manipulate it?
That's a good one! I don't recall ever seeing the plus sign before. However, my good friend Google led me to this page
which I think will help you out, at least as a starting point. Seems to have something to do with ACLs (access control lists).
