Description Derek Tattersall 2001-04-16 23:52:24 UTC
In the /usr/lib/cbb/ and /usr/lib/cbb/reports directories, the perl scripts
and tcl scripts do not have other execute permissions, and as the owner is
root, an oridinary user can't get a listing of his transactions.  This may
also be a problem in other directories under /usr/lib/cbb

I have uploaded cbb-0.8.1-8.noarch.rpm to http://people.redhat.com/timp/RPMS,
could you try that package to make sure it works for you?


BTW, thanks for the report!

cbb-0.8.1-8.noarch.rpm  fixed all the problems my wife had.  Prints a report
first time out of the box.  Thanks, Tim.
