Description A. Miklas 2001-09-13 05:07:23 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-12 i686; en-US; 0.7)
Gecko/20010316

Description of problem:
The file /usr/bin/artswrapper is not installed with the setuid root
permission.  The "aRts control" utility indicates that this is a
requirement for smooth audio playback.  Additionally, because the file is
not setuid, some options in the KDE control center for "sound server" have
no effect.

This file should probably be installed setuid.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
arts-2.1.2-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
N/A
	

Additional info:

This bug was filed under component kdelibs because I couldn't find an arts
option instead.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-09-13 08:29:45 UTC
This was intentional because artswrapper did not have a security audit in the 
7.1 timeframe.
It was audited for 7.2, and it is setuid in the current packages.
