filesystems/davfs2: "program is not setuid root" mismatch with documentation
Last modified: 2019-08-18 07:16:10 UTC
according to the documentation of davfs2 (/usr/share/doc/packages/davfs2/README) two steps must be taken to setup a mount:
> - Non-root users can only mount using the normal mount program. There must
> also be an entry in /etc/fstab. This can only be done by root.
> - To mount a WebDAV resource users must be member of dav_group (default is
> group 'davfs2'). The administrator may use group membership to allow or
> disallow mounting of WebDAV resources.
I did both, for the latter:
users davfs2 vboxusers
However, I do get this error when mounting as normal user:
> mount synced
/sbin/mount.davfs: program is not setuid root: No such file or directory
In the changelog I found a potentially related bug #907662 but I get an access denied error.
I guess that either some file permission on the mount.davfs file is not correct, or the documentation is wrong.
I assigned to bug to the maintainer as there is no specific bugowner.
