Description Anduin Withers 2005-06-25 18:16:16 EDT
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

How reproducible:

(Just to pick one, there are several others)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ctrlproxy
2. Attempt to use it
3. Fail

4. ls -ld /usr/lib/ctrlproxy

drw-r--r--  2 root root 4096 Jun 25 17:37 /usr/lib/ctrlproxy/
Actual results:

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))

Expected results:

1. Install
2. Works

Next time pick "general" instead of a completely unrelated component.

I requested component creation for ctrlproxy here:

FE CVS shows an attempt at fixing the file permissions. Here's a patch to fix
them completely.

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 :)
