    Command:

    dpkg-statoverride

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           dpkg-statoverride [option...] command
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           'stat  overrides' are a way to tell dpkg(1) to use a different owner or
           mode for a file when a package is installed.  (note:  I  use  the  word
           'file' here, but in reality this can be any filesystem object that dpkg
           handles, including directories, devices, etc.). This  can  be  used  to
           force  programs that are normally setuid to be install without a setuid
           flag, or only executable by a certain group.
    
           dpkg-statoverride is a utility to manage the list of stat overrides. It
           has three basic functions: adding, removing and listing overrides.
    
    
    

    COMMANDS

           --add user group mode file
                  Add  an override for file. file does not need to exist when this
                  command is used; the override will be  stored  and  used  later.
                  Users  and  groups  can  be specified by their name (for example
                  root or nobody), or by their number  by  prepending  the  number
                  with  a  '#'  (for  example  #0 or #65534). The mode needs to be
                  specified in octal.
    
                  If --update is specified and file exists, it is immediately  set
                  to the new owner and mode.
    
           --remove file
                  Remove  an  override  for  file,  the  status  of  file  is left
                  unchanged by this command.
    
           --list [glob-pattern]
                  List all overrides. If a glob pattern is specified restrict  the
                  output  to overrides which match the glob. If there are no over-
                  rides or none match the glob dpkg-statoverride will exit with an
                  exitcode of 1.
    
           --help Show the usage message and exit.
    
           --version
                  Show the version and exit.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           --admindir directory
                  Change the directory of the dpkg database where the statoverride
                  file is also stored. Defaults to /var/lib/dpkg.
    
           --force
                  Force an action, even if a sanity check would otherwise prohibit
                  it.  This is necessary to override an existing override.
    
           --update
                  Immediately  try to change the file to the new owner and mode if
                  along  with  other  files important to dpkg, such as 'status' or
                  'available'.
                  Note: dpkg-statoverride preserves the old  copy  of  this  file,
                  with extension "-old", before replacing it with the new one.
