Description J. J. Ramsey 2003-11-01 22:19:05 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031027 Description of problem: If I type "info ld", I get the error message "info: dir: Permission denied". This is because only root has permission to read /usr/share/info/dir. I can fix the problem easily with chmod. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): info-4.5-2 How reproducible: Always

Due to braindeadness in the new Bugzilla, I was forced to enter a false value for the component. "info" was not available from the list of components, and having anything in the "Component Text" box made Bugzilla tell me to press "Back" and choose a component.

What's the history of this installation?

What does 'umask' say, as root?

Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2003-11-04 17:47:59 UTC
A fresh installation of Fedora Core (latest tree) doesn't have this problem. I think this probably occurred during an upgrade of a separate package. It sounds like an errant scriptlet adjusting that file without using install-info. One package whose scriptlet looks particularly suspicious is bc. Reassigning.

Closing as "NOT A BUG".
