Description Rui Matos 2007-03-12 22:38:02 EDT
Description of problem:
While doing some profiles I noticed that sysprof doesn't display the debuginfo
for the X server although I have xorg-x11-server-debuginfo-1.1.1-47.7.fc6
installed. I'm filling this on xorg-x11-server and not on sysprof since for
other packages it seems to be working (gtk, pango, etc.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

I'm attaching a sysprof profile where one can see that X show up as only:

??? [/usr/bin/Xorg]

sysprof profile demonstrating the problem
Comment 2 Rui Matos 2007-03-12 22:56:36 EDT
It seems that /usr/bin/Xorg has some strict permission bits:

-rws--x--x 1 root root 1820836 Fev 28 21:34 /usr/bin/Xorg

which would explain why sysprof can't read the data. But still, after I changed
those bits to:

-rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 1820836 Fev 28 21:34 /usr/bin/Xorg

I still don't obtain X info on profiles.
Comment 3 Søren Sandmann Pedersen 2007-03-13 02:00:12 EDT
Sysprof also needs the ability to read /proc/<pid-of-xserver>/maps, so you have
to run it as root to get information about the X server.

(But we should stop installing the X server binary read-only - those bits are
not exactly secret ...)
