Subject: [Bug 14203] New: File permissions not working correctly


Summary: File permissions not working correctly
Product: File System
Version: 2.5
Kernel Version: 2.6.31-10-386
Platform: All
OS/Version: Linux
Tree: Mainline
Status: NEW
Severity: high
Priority: P1
Component: ext4
AssignedTo: [email protected]
ReportedBy: [email protected]
Regression: No

I have two ext4 partitions, one for the entire system(P1) and the other for all
my stuff(P2). The problem occurs in the P2 partition. If I set the permission
of a file to read-only(444), I'm still able to rename or delete that file, no
matters who's the owner of the file(that's happen even when the file owner is
the root). Another curious thing is that I can rename the file but I can not
replace that file with a file with the same name(in that case the error message
that I don't have permission to do that appears.

The permissions in the P1 partition works perfect. Here is the fstab file. If
more info is needed I'm glad to give it([email protected])


cat fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'vol_id --uuid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
