/sbin/consoletype: Permission denied when logging in
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:04:29 EDT
Description of problem:
A regular user gets "/sbin/consoletype: Permission denied" when logging in.
The /etc/profile.d/lang.sh script wants to run the program but the
permissions on the file are 500. In RHEL4 the permissions are 755.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm running the RHEL5 beta 2 with SELinux enabled and the MLS
policy from dwalsh's people page.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.create a regular using (bash shell in my case)
-bash: /sbin/consoletype: Permission denied
If I change the permissions it works of course.
I'm not seeing this - on all arches, /sbin/consoletype is 0755.
How did you install?
I had a feeling it seemed too broken to not be noticed...
I installed using the kickstart script we're using for the LSPP
project and the script.
Let me take a closer look at what its doing. I hope I can find a log
Well, I verified that the rpm thinks the permissions should be 755 so
this must be a bug in the kickstart setup. Sorry about that. Shall I
just close the bug or do you want to?
