Linux setfacl directory problems


I've got a folder with 770 permissions:

stat /var/test2
  File: `/var/test2'
  Size: 4096            Blocks: 16         IO Block: 4096   directory
Device: ca01h/51713d    Inode: 1870464     Links: 2
[b]Access: (0770/drwxrwx---)  Uid: (    0/    root)   Gid: (    0/    root)[/b]
Access: 2012-07-09 14:24:44.000000000 +0300
Modify: 2012-07-09 14:24:32.000000000 +0300
Change: 2012-07-09 14:24:32.000000000 +0300

Open in new window

And I've tried to add recursive read access for user op on the wanted folder:

setfacl -Rm u:op:r /var/test2/

Open in new window

However, when I try to read files in that folder or cd into it, I get the error:
tail: cannot open `test2/test3' for reading: Permission denied

Open in new window

Any input is appreciated!

Thank you!
