fighting some Synology gremlin where I create files on NFS mounts and they're all 777

chmod has no effect.


it was something to do with Synology's extended attributes. As soon as I cleared them on the NAS, everything started working properly.

Jeez... I mean, the B-52 was massive and unwieldy, but at least I didn't have to babysit file permissions every couple weeks..

Also! It finally dawned on me to make missing utilities (like less!) by compiling them static on my computer and then putting the binaries on the NAS.

It's almost like I can use the thing now ;o)
