Description Felipe Alfaro Solana 2005-02-11 22:53:24 UTC
Description of problem:
The console.perms file shipped with pam-0.78-4 fixes permissions for DRI device
nodes /dev/nvidia/* and /dev/3dfx/*, however, it leaves out DRI device nodes for
other graphics cards that live in /dev/dri/*.

My ATI Radeon 7000VE graphics card has its DRI device node represented by
/dev/dri/card0. I have attached a very simple patch that covers /dev/dri/* along
with /dev/nvidia/* and /dev/3dfx/*.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
Login to any valid user account in X11 and check /dev/dri/card0 nas root:root
and owner and 0660 permissions.

Expected results:
Pam *must* change /dev/dri/card0 permissions to match those from the user that
logged into X.

Additional info:
See attached patch.
