Description Joe Orton 2002-04-09 05:09:59 EDT
The current (post-beta) installer binary cannot be run on an existing
installation, since it attempts to open var/log/install.log O_EXCL | O_CREAT to
prevent /tmp races.

Fix is to try O_EXCL | O_CREAT then fall back on no-O_CREAT, which still avoids
the /tmp race.
Comment 1 Joe Orton 2002-04-09 05:13:41 EDT
Scratch previous comment.

Solution is really to create the install log in a non-world-writable location,
and not bother with O_EXCL at all.
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2002-04-09 06:08:55 EDT
Fixed in rev 1.117 of catapult/installer/main.c
