Description of problem:
I can't connect to RedHat 7.1 (QA0511 build) Linuxserver through ftp
service by using normal user.

permissions on "/etc/shells" is incorrect 
it is -rw-rw-rw- while it should be -rw-r--r--

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create a new user 	
2.ftp localhost (or from other machine)
3. type user/passwd -- access is denied/

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-05-17 11:57:04 UTC
On the wu-ftpd side, it's a feature - if /etc/shells is world writable, we'd 
rather lock everyone out than letting everyone logging in.

/etc/shells being created with the wrong permissions is definitely not a 
wu-ftpd problem, I presume anaconda sets the wrong umask.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2001-05-21 19:45:42 UTC
I just did a full install of Seawolf and anaconda writes out the correct
permissions for /etc/shells.

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root           84 May  24 13:50 /etc/shells

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-05-21 20:30:03 UTC
Oh, you were using the SBE.  I just heard from other developers that this bug
was introduced sometime between Seawolf and qa0511, but this has been fixed in
the past few days.
