comment vsftpd virtual user read permissions
'fraid not. I have already exhausted that source of information I have both xferlog_enable=YES and log_ftp_protocol=YES but it does provide any further enlightenment. I found to list the contents of a directory it needs 504 permissions and to download a file it needs 404 permissions.

I had already covered that point in my original question where I said "The user and group used for the userspec argument need to be defined inside the chroot."

comment chroot fails with --userspec when chroot is i686
I thought I had answered my own question. Like I said, I was sent a patch by coreutils which I applied and it fixed the problem. I thought I had said that ;) There is no "official patch" and they haven't said anything about if/when there will be one. I haven't posted the patch as it was given to me as "tentative". As soon as I hear more I will update it here.

comment chroot fails with --userspec when chroot is i686
I asked the coreutils team about this and I have tested a patch to chroot that fixes the problem. I don't as of yet know if/when it will be released.
