Description Curtis Doty 2007-12-07 16:26:44 EST
$ vtysh

Hello, this is Quagga (version 0.99.9).
Copyright 1996-2005 Kunihiro Ishiguro, et al.

localhost# show start
Can't open configuration file [(null)]

This is because rpm creates /etc/quagga/vtysh.conf with wrong perms. Workaround
is to chown quagga:quaggavt vtysh.conf just like the vtysh.conf.sample already is.

Proper fix is probably something like the *as-yet-untested* specfile patch
attached. Thanks!

Hi, I'm using default settings and when executing vtysh as root I don't see this
problem. When I try using my regular (wheel) user, vtysh just quietly quit. Then
I uncommented this line in /etc/pam.d/quagga:
auth       sufficient   pam_wheel.so trust use_uid

And now vtysh claims it cannot connect to any daemons. strace revealed that:
connect(3, {sa_family=AF_FILE, path="/var/run/quagga/zebra.vty"}, 27) = -1
EACCES (Permission denied)

Just to make it short, your fix is simple and reasonable, but I would like to
know, what is the standard way to configure quagga so that a regular user can
use vtysh? I need this so I can reproduce this bug and verify the fix. Your help
would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Make that user *both* a member of wheel and quaggavt.

Thank you for your quick response, I can now reproduce this. I'll fix this shortly.
