I use Freebsd6.1.

I want to give a symbolic link for a directory with ln -s as below;


cd /

ln -s /var/tmp/  tmp2

ls -l /var/tmp
lrwxr-xr-x   1 root  wheel       14 Dec 21 10:12 tmp -> /var/tmp

I change write of user and group but i can't that.
chmod 777   tmp2

ls -l  tmp2
lrwxr-xr-x   1 root  wheel       14 Dec 21 10:12 tmp -> /var/tmp

Why don't I able to change user rights of tmp2 ?
