Description of problem:
The /dev/fuse device is created correctly as
crw-rw---- 1 root fuse 10, 229 Feb 5 21:44 /dev/fuse
However as soon as fuse is actually used, i.e., when
the kernel module "fuse" is loaded, the permissions
are changed to:
crw------- 1 root fuse 10, 229 Feb 5 21:46 /dev/fuse
Then of course users in the group "fuse" are not
able any more to use fuse.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
The fix for this appears to be to rename /etc/udev/rules.d/40-fuse.rules to
/etc/udev/rules.d/60-fuse.rules. This works for me.
Ack. This is caused by later udev versions and needs to be fixed in FC-4 and
FC-5. Moving it to anything > 50 seems to fix it.
Ping: any reason why this has not been pushed to FC-4 yet?
