Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1195661
lock files cannot be created for non logged users
Last modified: 2016-11-30 19:48:12 EST
Description of problem:
The ProcessLock class tries to create lock files in /run/user/[uid], but the directory exists only if the user is logged in and regular users do not have sufficient rights to create a run directory for them. This behaviour causes me problems when I run my script downloading debuginfo packages into a directory owned by user abrt, because the script must be suided, so /run/user/173 (uid of abrt is 173 does not exist).
I've opened the following pull request:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.use dnf API in a suided binary
[Errno 13] Permission denied: '/run/user/173'
No such an error.
