Description Enrico Scholz 2000-08-21 12:25:19 UTC
When building the package as non-root something goes wrong with the `ksu'
program (see 4th and last line):

making install in clients/ksu...
make[2]: Entering directory
for f in ksu; do \
  /usr/bin/install -c -s -m 4755 -o root $f \
        /var/tmp/krb5-root/usr/kerberos/bin/`echo $f|sed 's,x,x,'`; \
  /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./$f.M \
        /var/tmp/krb5-root/usr/kerberos/man/man1/`echo $f|sed 's,x,x,'`.1;
/usr/bin/install: /var/tmp/krb5-root/usr/kerberos/bin/ksu: Operation not

Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-08-21 13:48:36 UTC
Our build system defaults to building packages as a non-root user specifically
to catch these cases.  Does the ksu binary still end up in the right place?

Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-08-21 14:10:23 UTC
I've just rebuilt the package as myself, and the files get included.  The error
message is harmless.

Comment 3 Enrico Scholz 2000-08-21 14:18:56 UTC

# ll /usr/kerberos/bin/ksu 
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        50364 Aug 21 14:22 /usr/kerberos/bin/ksu

The official install-method tries to install it SUID; but the packaged file
isn't it.

Comment 4 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-08-21 14:24:01 UTC
The MIT Kerberos team isn't sure that the previously-fixed vulnerabilities in
ksu were all of the potential problems, so we took the setuid-bit off pending a
complete audit of the sources.
