Hi folks, I have a problem with setting acl to my any of my mounted fs's. My /etc/fstab looks like:

/dev/mapper/fedora_kami--01-root /                       ext4    defaults,acl        1 1

/dev/mapper/fedora_kami--01-home /home                   ext4    rw,acl              1 2

/dev/mapper/fedora_kami--01-swap swap                    swap    defaults            0 0

I tried remounting and rebooting but still i can't see that it's enabled.

I use mount | grep acl to check.

Thanks in advance!

Are you able to mount it manually by using: mount -o acl BlockDevice MountPoint?

Try running sudo mount -a in a terminal and see if there are any error messages.

If you are using F24 (as indicated by the tag attached to this question), then acl, along with user_xattr, is already a default option on ext4 filesystems.

To verify this:

$ sudo tune2fs -l /dev/mapper/fedora_kami--01-root | grep 'Default mount'

Should return:

Default mount options: user_xattr acl

These default mount options don't seem to appear when running mount - not sure why.
