Description Petr Muller 2008-03-27 11:28:22 EDT
Description of problem: It seems that tests/pwhash_test testcase doesn't get 
exec permissions during build process, which results to this when doing 'make 

/bin/sh: line 8: ./tests/pwhash_test: Permission denied
FAIL: tests/pwhash_test

After 'chmod a+x tests/pwhash_test', the test runs fine and PASSes

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -Uhv libuser-0.54.7-2.el5.5.src.rpm
2. rpmbuild -bc /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/libuser.spec
3. cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/libuser-0.54.7
4. make check
Actual results:
/bin/sh: line 8: ./tests/pwhash_test: Permission denied
FAIL: tests/pwhash_test
1 of 5 tests failed

Expected results:

PASS: tests/pwhash_test
All 5 tests passed

Additional info:
This is very very low priority, but could save us confusion when testing next 
release, and is probably easy to fix.

Thanks for your report.
