Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 163174
Default mode appears to be 0660 since 051, not 0600
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:09 EST
The default mode of device nodes created by udev appears to be 0660 since udev
051, not 0600 like the comments in 50-udev.rules shipped in FC4 and later
I reported this upstream and sent the attached patch there, but I'm reporting
it here as well because the FC package is using a "private" 50-udev.rules, not
the upstream redhat/udev.rules one.
Additionally, if the default really is 0660 nowadays, the shipped
50-udev.rules could be cleaned up quite a bit.
Created attachment 116715 [details]
For reference: upstreamed fix for default mode docs
put mode back to 0600 to keep secure settings.
