FBTAB(5)                     BSD Reference Manual                     FBTAB(5)

NAME

     fbtab - change device protection upon login

DESCRIPTION

     The fbtab file contains lines which specify how the permissions and own-
     ership of various system files should be changed based on the user's lo-
     gin 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 (e.g.,
                           "/dev/ttyv0").

     File Permission       An octal permission number (0600), as used by
                           chmod(2).

     Other devices         The final field is a colon (':') delimited list of
                           devices (e.g., "/dev/console:/dev/fd0a"). All dev-
                           ice 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.
