Q: How to fix the mask value in acl?

Karthik NedunchezhiyanI have set the mask value to r-- (group class). When I added a group with rw- using setfacl (setfacl -m g:test:rw- time.txt). I noticed mask value is changed to rwx.

@Rinzwind Darn. The work laptop I got is more powerful then my HOME PC. Played 0 A.D. on it, and I needed a 1000 units to make it lag, just a lil bit. Wanted to play with other folks

11:58 AM
@damadam The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III --speedrun-- takes about 95 hours :D
@blade19899 well what is BAD with this game: at the end you go to ng+ and can tranfer certain things into ng+ so you can keep going. This does NOT work for treasure you open. 288 of them. Need to do that in 1 playthrough ... and some of those treasure are hidden or can only be picked up at a specific moment or after a combination of events. Soooooooooo very easy to miss.

hello guys
I was using virtualenv without any problem I could create, delete enviromnets. But after the installation of Anaconda in my machine its not possible to create new virtualenv, but I can use the old ones. Whenever I try to create a new one the following error is showing:

user@user-H270M-D3H:~$ mkvirtualenv test
bash: /home/sysg/.local/bin/virtualenv: /usr/bin/python: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
How to get rid of this. What's the real problem? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

how to check that
I used which python and it shows the below path

Q: What is the use of pivot root in mount namespace?

Karthik NedunchezhiyanI am trying to understand use of pivot_root in a mount namespace. In most of the resource, explanation is more complex to me. Can anyone kindly explain the use of pivot_root with real-world use-case. Thanks

2:34 PM
@SRJ577 how about ls /usr/bin/python
Its showing
ls: cannot access '/usr/bin/python': No such file or directory
so there is your answer :)
/home/sysg/.local/bin/virtualenv assumes /usr/bin/python exists
