Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 189994
/dev/pmu has wrong permissions on ppc
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:31 EST
Syncing rawhide today, I discovered that gnome-power-manager (or whatever it's
called) didn't like the permissions on /dev/pmu. It used to be:
0600 jcm.root /dev/pmu
I'm not sure if this is a bug that should be filed against udev because the
permissions on /dev/pmu were probably set by pam on login. Advice sought.
The net result is a popup window with "Wrong permission for /dev/pmu device" on
What I meant to say was that the user ownership is now screwed up so it's owned
by root.root rather than jcm.root.
Workaround from bug 189966 comment #1 fixed it for me.
