Description Russell Coker 2004-04-20 00:48:02 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.2; Linux) (KHTML, like Gecko)

Description of problem:
?---------  root     root     (null)      oracle

Above is a line from "ls -lZ /" on my Fedora play machine.

lstat64("oracle", 0x905398c)    = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)

Above is a line from the strace output of the above ls command, note that the stat fails and therefore the ls command can't know what UID owns the file/directory in question.  In this test it is uid 100.

The UID and GID fields should be changed from "root" to be either "?" characters or spaces.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Run SE Linux on your machine, login as a user_r user and run
"ls -lZ /".  Note that "ls -l /" gives correct results.

Confirmed.  Should be fixed in coreutils-5.2.1-6.
Comment 2 Russell Coker 2006-03-26 23:38:13 EST
As this has been fixed for ages (and is fixed in FC5) I think it should be 
closed.
