Re: Please think about this


Here you are talking about acls (access control list). Linux has not
support for this feature. You need to use a patch to be able to use this

It's quite fast, though sometimes after Mandrake installation medusa is not started as default so I have to start the daemon by hand and wait untill it finishes indexing.

The prob is that is not the default searching tool and the default one is not so good, but is easy to add an icon to the main gnome menu to have Gnome-find at hand.

This would be easier if standard groups where created from the start and make a Group Tool easier to link each folder/file to the proper group. Let me explain. You install Linux and you get six main groups:
