Description Peter H.S. 2001-05-27 19:31:02 EDT
Description of Problem:
The binaries: "iptraf" and "rvnamed" in the iptraf-2.4.0-1.i386.rpm 
(rawhide) package, does not have the right permissions. Therefore the 
program can not be executed.
The program is installed with octal permission 100600 (read & write).

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -Uvh iptraf-2.4.0-1.i386.rpm
2. /usr/bin/iptraf

Actual Results:
bash: /usr/bin/iptraf: Permission denied

Expected Results:
The program "iptraf" should start.

Additional Information:
This bug is submitted in the "Red Hat 7.1 Powertools" section, and not in 
the otherwise more appropriate "Red Hat Rawhide" section, since it was 
impossible to choose "iptraf" as a component there. (How about a Red Hat 
Rawhide Powertools section?)

The workaround for the rpm version, is simply to give appropriate 
executable permissions to the files /usr/bin/iptraf and /usr/bin/rvnamed. 
For security reasons, probably only root should be able to use this 
program on multi-user systems.
