Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188385
PAM does not lift IrDA devices to console permission status
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:30 EST
Description of problem:
If you have e.g. a laptop with an IrDA (infrared) interface and
modprobe in a driver and then the TTY IrDA emulator, the resulting
terminal connections in /dev/ircomm0, /dev/ircomm1 ... etc
are not accessible by the console user. These are analogous
to USB sticks, memory cards etc and are used for e.g. accessing
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. modprobe an IrDA driver (I use smsc-ircc2)
2. modprobe ircomm-tty
3. Resulting devices are not accessible by the cosole user
Not accessible by console user.
Should be accessible by console user.
I think adding these entries in the right places to
<console> 0600 <ircomm> 0600 root
I marked the severity as high since there are many people
that want to use their mobile phones over IrDA.
Ping, anybody out there?
This was fixed in pam-0.99.4.0-fc5.4 - in FC5 updates.
