The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 3443
Script should be created to test Xattr support

(So I don't have to manually type lots of text in to a vmware session)
This also allows things like friendly error messages inlcuding what to fix for the specific filesystem, checking if the kernel supports stuff etc.
Just a note, I'm going to try giving this a shot after I get back from LCA.
Created attachment 1740 [details]
First bash at test script
The attachment is a first bash at a script, it either checks a specified directory or the root directory of all mounted filesystems.
Note that the use of $$ as a file name is considered a security hole by some people, even in scripts like this (eg debian security team). If this gets merged it should use some platform-neutral equivilent of mktemp.
Andrew, have you tested this script?
Yes, it should use mktemp. Let's not get a slap later if we can avoid it.
Question: Should this script still be created? If there isn't any interest anymore I'll close this bug with WONTFIX.
No request -> closing for now.
