Description Ben Liblit 2007-11-17 15:46:54 EST
Description of problem:

/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/bigboard/stocks is not owned by the bigboard
RPM.  This directory is, therefore, created with some default permission
settings.  Those permissions may not include read and execute for other, which
means that bigboard fails when run by non-root users

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


How reproducible:

Consistently reproducible.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. remove the bigboard rpm
2. manually remove /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/bigboard/stocks
3. reinstall the bigboard rpm
4. as non-root, run bigboard

Actual results:

OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied:

Expected results:

bigboard should run without error.

Comment 1 Ben Liblit 2008-05-21 02:18:53 EDT
This is fixed in bigboard-0.5.34-2.fc9.  It might have been fixed before then,
but it's at least fixed as of that version.  Resolving as CURRENTRELEASE.
