tcpdump: Couldn't change ownership of savefile
Last modified: 2014-06-13 08:22:14 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1015767 +++
Description of problem:
when running tcpdump with -w -, this error message is printed:
Couldn't change ownership of savefile
chown("-", 72, 72) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
tcpdump should not change owner of stdin (or better, not handle "-" as a regular file)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. tcpdump -nni any -s 0 -w -
error message + some garbage
dump output to stdout as in previous versions
This should be fixed with current build. Moving to MODIFIED.
