I'm using busybox's adduser to create home direcory.

adduser foo

I found the directory which created in a strange permission drwxs-xr-x (with setgid flag)

Is there any config file which can let it be drwxrwsrwx

Why not just simply change the permission afterword? Busybox is not a greatly sophisticated Linux and lacks a certain amount of configurability I have found in some cases. – mdpc Feb 2 '13 at 3:52
I guess there is a tip to modify the default settings. – Daniel YC Lin Feb 3 '13 at 4:26
