Description Enrico Scholz 2001-06-21 09:38:45 EDT
Description of Problem:

The install: rule of src/Makefile of kbd-1.06-1 tries to

| install -c -m 0755 -o root $(...

which fails as non-root. This results in missing files and a lot of files
with bad permissions.

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. become an ordinary user
2. rpm --rebuild kbd-1.06-1.src.rpm

Actual Results:

- a lot of "install: cannot change ownership ..." messages in the %install
- missing files or files on bad locations (loadkey)
- bad permissions (all files in /usr/bin/* are 0600)
Comment 1 Enrico Scholz 2001-06-21 20:53:19 EDT
initscripts makes wrong assumptions about the place of loadkeys also:

|  [ -f /usr/bin/loadkeys ] || exit 0

loadkeys is in /bin.
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-06-25 05:40:07 EDT
Fixed in 1.06-2
