Description Awez 2017-01-18 05:49:29 UTC
Description of problem: 

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


How reproducible:
                 easily, see below

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Check /var/spool/at and /var/spool/at/spool directory ownership

Actual results:

 [root@srv2-rhel6 ~]# ls -ld /var/spool/at 
 drwx------. 3 daemon daemon 29 May 23  2016 /var/spool/at

 [root@srv2-rhel6 ~]# ls -ld /var/spool/at/spool 
 drwx------. 2 daemon daemon 6 May 23  2016 /var/spool/at/spool

 [root@srv2-rhel6 ~]# man atd
        /var/spool/at The directory for storing jobs; this should be mode 700, owner root.

        /var/spool/at/spool The directory for storing output; this should be mode 700, owner root.

Expected results:

man page entry should be corrected.
 /var/spool/at and /var/spool/at/spool owner should be 'daemon' not 'root'

Additional info:

 [root@srv2-rhel6 ~]# rpm -q --scripts -f /var/spool/at/
 postinstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
 touch /var/spool/at/.SEQ
 chmod 600 /var/spool/at/.SEQ
 chown daemon:daemon /var/spool/at/.SEQ                        <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< 
 # must be in chkconfig on
 /sbin/chkconfig --add atd
 preuninstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
 if [ "$1" = "0" ] ; then
	 /sbin/service atd stop >/dev/null 2>&1 ||:
 	 /sbin/chkconfig --del atd
 postuninstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
 if [ "$1" -ge "1" ]; then
	 /sbin/service atd condrestart >/dev/null 2>&1 ||:

script is changing the ownership.
