Description Michael Cutler 2008-10-21 12:21:53 EDT
Description of problem:

  Bit of an edge case, but running "sectool --level 1" on a freshly installed system with no regular users and an empty /home directory produced the following message:

home_dirs ->
    Warning: This is a first run of the test. Some parts of audit are skipped.
    Failure: stat -f "MODE:%6p UID:%6u GID: %g   " "" failed.
    home_dirs: FAIL

And on repeating the test,

home_dirs ->
    Failure: stat -f "MODE:%6p UID:%6u GID: %g   " "" failed.
    home_dirs: FAIL

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


How reproducible:

  Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fresh install from FC10 snap2 dvd
2. Yum update to sectool-0.9.0-1.fc10.i386 if necessary
3. Ensure there are no 'normal' users and /home is empty
4. Run "sectool --level 1"
Actual results:

  sectools failed home_dirs

Expected results:

  home_dirs should be skipped or passed if /home is empty and there are no normal users.
