Description Jirka Klimes 2015-12-01 04:06:40 EST
wpa_supplicant installs systemd service file as executable. That triggers systemd complain:
"systemd: Configuration file /usr/lib/systemd/system/wpa_supplicant.service is marked executable. Please remove executable permission bits. Proceeding anyway."

Let's remove the executable bits.

* The bug has been fixed in fedora bug 803980.
* A customer mentioned this warning (among other things) in bug 1286576.

Installed RHEL-7.3-20160523.n.0 x86_64 and verified that wpa_supplicant.service is no longer showing the executable permissions.

# ls -l /usr/lib/systemd/system/wpa_supplicant.service
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 365 Mar 21 11:22 /usr/lib/systemd/system/wpa_supplicant.service

Marking as verified.
