Description vvs 2007-06-14 04:24:51 EDT
Description of problem:

After installation on a new computer without any previous version of Fedora the
permissions on /etc are 0700. I had issues with messagebus and su because of
insufficient permissions. SELinux is disabled (if this even matters).

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

filesystem-2.4.6-1.fc7

How reproducible:

On any new installation (not upgrade)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora on a new computer
2. look at permissions on /etc
  
Actual results:

The permissions are 0700

Expected results:

It should allow at least search in /etc for other users (i.e. o+x)

Additional info:

I didn't try to upgrade old Fedora and don't know if this issue is present in
such case.

I just checked the rpm, and there everything looks fine:

[phil@kfurt os]$ rpm -qpvl filesystem-2.4.6-1.fc7.i386.rpm  | grep "/etc"

I've also installed a new machine with FC7 and that didn't show those problems.
Have you done a LiveCD installation by any chance?

Read ya, Phil

Sorry for rushing to conclusions. Tried on other computer a LiveCD and DVD
installations, all looks fine. Seems, that there were some unusual circumstances
during installation and I can't reproduce it yet. Anyway, this isn't a bug in
filesystem so I'll close it for now and will investigate further. Sorry again.
