Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 161690
ctrlproxy package still has perm issues
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:08 EST
Description of problem:
No, this is not an irssi bug (sorry, no good component to pick).
ctrlproxy as currently packaged is useless (due to bad file perms mostly).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name : ctrlproxy
Version : 2.6.2
Release : 2.fc4
(Just to pick one, there are several others)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ctrlproxy
2. Attempt to use it
4. ls -ld /usr/lib/ctrlproxy
drw-r--r-- 2 root root 4096 Jun 25 17:37 /usr/lib/ctrlproxy/
Many file permissions are wrong (to the point of non-root users not being able
to get to doc directory, or load the module in /usr/lib/ctrlproxy).
Basically someone should try to use it as a non-root user, it fails quickly.
(It is also missing modules (like stats) that it installs man pages for (and
the default config tool/config file uses))
Next time pick "general" instead of a completely unrelated component.
I requested component creation for ctrlproxy here:
Created attachment 115982 [details]
spec patch to fix permissions
FE CVS shows an attempt at fixing the file permissions. Here's a patch to fix

Didn't know "general" existed, I did bother to put a relevant e-mail address
in. Thanks for the tip.
Ok, I've applied this patch in CVS and pushed new packages to the build system.
David will yell at me later if he wants to, but I doubt he will :)
