Description Michal Jaegermann 2004-08-20 22:57:17 UTC
Description of problem:

I got the following on a startup:

Starting mDNSResponder... /etc/profile: line 28: /dev/null: Permission
/etc/profile.d/colorls.sh: line 3: /dev/null: Permission denied
/etc/profile.d/colorls.sh: line 4: /dev/null: Permission denied

                                                           [  OK  ]

It is quite likely that errors are actually side-effects of
bug #130515; but "[  OK  ]" after all this noise?

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

How reproducible:
With what I got in /dev right now it happens every time when
you try with 'service mDNSResponder start'.

Comment 1 Bastien Nocera 2004-08-31 02:05:09 UTC
It's hardly the mDNSResponder's fault that your system is fubar'ed...
Most applications expect a minimum of the underlying system, including
that root can access /dev/null.
