NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     fbtab - change device protection upon login

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The fbtab file contains lines which specify how the  permissions and ownership
  of  various  system files should be changed based on
the user's login
 device name.

     Comments start with a `#' and extend to the end of the line.
Blank lines
     or lines with only a comment are ignored.

     All other lines consist of three fields delimited by whitespace.

     Login Device          The  device  you  have  logged  in  on

     File  Permission       An octal permission number (0600), as
used by

     Other devices         The final field is a colon  (`:')  delimited list of
                           devices       (e.g.,       ``/dev/console:/dev/fd0a'').  All
                           device names are  absolute  paths.   A
path that ends
                           in  ``/*'' refers to all directory entries except
                           ``.'' and ``..''.

     The fbtab file is used by login(1) to chown(2) the specified
files to the
     user  who  has performed a login.  Additionally, chmod(2) is
used to set
     the devices to the specified permission.  When a  user  logs
out, init(8)
     is  responsible  for performing the inverse operation, which
results in the
     files once again belonging to root.
