Description Josh Bressers 2004-11-09 15:00:07 EST
Stefan Dirsch reported to the freedesktop.org bugzilla an issue with
permissions within the DRM code.

See this url for more information, including a patch.

This issue should also affect RHEL2.1
Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2004-11-09 15:04:41 EST
This issue probably also affects RHEL4.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2004-11-10 15:39:49 EST
DRM source is part of both the kernel and X.  We build it in the
kernel.  Reassigning to kernel component.
Comment 3 Ernie Petrides 2004-11-15 17:00:30 EST
Peter/Tim, I'm assuming that DaveJ is too busy with RHEL4 to take on
this bug.  But I don't know who else covers this area.  I'm sticking
PeterM with this for now (presumably for appropriate reassignment).

Josh, the URL in your initial comment times out.  Could you please
provide another pointer?  Thanks in advance.
Comment 4 Josh Bressers 2004-11-15 17:18:52 EST
freedesktop.org seems to be down.  I don't have a different source for
this information, hopefully the site comes back alive soon.  If not
I'll do some digging.

Freedesktop.org was compromised. Google has it in cache:

The patch proposed is missing the definition of the LOCK_TEST..., see
Comment 9 Ernie Petrides 2005-04-27 22:37:35 EDT

A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U6
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-32.9.EL).
