Should the group of my user be None?
Sun Nov 9 03:36:00 GMT 2014
Thank you for your replies.
The permission of files under ~/.ssh can't be changed to 600 when their
group owner is None. I have to chgrp -R Users (or Administrators, or any
other group name other than None) ~/.ssh to make it possible to run
chmod on them. I suppose this is a bug of cygwin on Windows 8/8.1 ?
I changed my GID in /etc/passwd from 513 to 544 to make my primary group
Administrators. Now the group owner of the files are turned to ????? .
Is it OK to do this?
