symlink data in RPM for this package broken
Last modified: 2015-03-27 15:07:49 EDT
rpm -v flags mode discrepancies on many symlinks. They are
mode 755 or 644 in the package but get installed mode 777
(and it is impossible to change them to any other mode with
This bug, and the next several are really rpm anomalies, as info chmod
indicates that symlinks always have permissions of 777 and that when
attempts to chmod a symlink the underlying file's permissions are
see bug 528
Fixed in recent versions of rpm-2.5.x/rpm-2.90.x.
*** Bug 950 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
In some packages of the Apollo release, there are symbolic
links which RPM thinks should have mode lrwxr-xr-x (despite
the fact that *every* symlink *always* has mode lrwxrwxrwx).
See e.g. `/usr/bin/X11' in package `filesystem'.
In build/files.c:add_file(), don't reset the file's mode if
it is a symlink (i.e., if S_ISLNK(p->statbuf)). Also, in
lib/verify.c:rpmVerifyFile(), don't verify the file's mode
it it is a symlink.
