Description Pawel Salek 2001-03-09 10:11:17 EST
The %pre server section of the .spec file sets executable bit on the
/var/log/postgresql log file.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -i postgresql-server
3.ls -l /var/log/postgresql

Actual Results:  -rwx------    1 postgres postgres    25115 Mar  9 15:58

Expected Results:  -rw-------    1 postgres postgres    25115 Mar  9 15:58

The chmod 0700 /var/log/posgresql command should be replaced by
chmod 0600 /var/log/posgresql

BTW, it wasn't clear to me how to enable logging to this file.
My recomendation would be to at least add a comment to

The file should obviously be 0600 instead of 0700... it doesn't hurt, though, so
I'll put it in the next time I fix something.
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-03-22 17:35:23 EST
Fixed in postgresql-7.0.3-8.
