Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 251818
No warning displayed when permissions on /bin/date are revoked
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:13 EST
Description of problem:
Time not being set; not message to user to indicate failure.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
N/A (No about box on utility; is this right?)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. As root revoke read, write execute permission on /bin/date
2. Open system-config-date from the menu. Change the time and press OK.
Time does not change; there is no indication of the failure to the user.
The utility should: a) check /bin/date exists and b) check that execute
permission on /bin/date is granted. If the utility is unable to set the date
the user should be informed.
