This bug is a blocker for a successful Spacewalk 1.1 @ Fedora-13

Updated tomcat6 for Fedora-13 would be very much appreciated.

Issue is still present, it is not possible to get tomcat running "out-of-the-package", had to change rights myself.

PS: this bug was assigned to 'orphan', I've ressigned it to the default for th component

David, we will likely need similar fix for RHEL 6, for Satellite. Do you want me to clone this bugzilla for RHEL 6?

Comment 1 Jan Pazdziora 2010-10-18 07:51:51 UTC
I believe similar fix is needed for RHEL 6.

Comment 2 Jan Pazdziora 2010-10-18 07:52:44 UTC
Please note that there already is a bug 634863 but that one only mentions the log directories. This one is about general group permissions on directories that tomcat6 uses.
