I have a shared EXT4 drive with 777 permissions for all users to use. Problem is :
When a user creates a new folder / file, it gets 644. I guess that is because of the umask for that user.
Now, I want to have all the new content with 777. For that I don't think editing the umask is good idea.
Then I tried the sticky bit, but in case of sticky bit only the user who created that file has the permission to delete the file. Again undesired behavior.
Then I tried, to use acl permissions on that. But on gogoling I got to know that acl is not recursive, therefore the permissions would be lost on 2nd level directory.
please suggest something.. I think i am out of ideas now !
The shared directory is for movies that all are allowed to add and delete. I don't want to go for ntfs - I believe I can have this drive as ext4 with the permission problem solved.
Please help !!
