Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 53835
v4l-conf should be suid root, is not
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:14 EDT
Description of Problem:
/usr/sbin/v4l-conf, provided by xawtv-3.34-1 on the
Powertools CD, should be suid root. Attempting to
run xawtv without manually doing this produces an
error message from v4l-conf that it needs to be
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install xawtv-3.34-1 from the Powertools CD
error message from v4l-conf that it needs to be suid root
xawtv should work
After manually setting the suid bit, xawtv works great.
(Apologies for the probable wrong component name. Xawtv is
in its own RPM, I couldn't find a component that appeared to
be correct, and bugzilla wouldn't accept a report without
some legal component selected.)
You need to reassign this to 'powertools' not Red Hat Linux, xawtv is
a component of powertools.
It's fixed in xawtv-3.62-1. You will fint it in next rawhide release.
