Same thing I'm afraid with exec: operation not permitted.

@David I don't know what to try or how to do this, that's precisely why I'm asking the question :)

comment Allow chmod on CIFS mount
For information, I'm trying to install a PEAR package for PHP over Composer, and the script fails because its PHAR package installer tries to chmod() some files. The exact error is: Extraction from phar "..." failed: Cannot extract "package.xml" to "...", setting file permissions failed.

comment Allow chmod on CIFS mount
@David Again I don't have control over the tool, which I believe is programmed in C, and makes calls to the system's chmod() function. @ernie It bails out when the file permissions are (trying to be) modified, and does not complete.
