Description Daniel Walsh 2010-10-25 09:39:30 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #646443 +++

Description of problem:

Please remove setuid setup of files in your package with file capabilities.

This is to satisfy the F15 feature.


An example of how this was done for X is.

%if 0%{?fedora} < 15
%define Xorgperms %attr(4711, root, root)
%define Xorgperms %attr(0711,root,root) %caps(cap_sys_admin,cap_sys_rawio,cap_dac_override=pe)
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2011-04-05 09:19:55 EDT
Any movement on this?
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 14:56:36 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)

More information and reason for this action is here:

Moving back to rawhide.  Any word on this?
Comment 4 Tomas Mraz 2013-09-11 14:58:43 EDT
As the setuid binaries in shadow-utils would need at least cap_dac_override and perhaps others, it does not really make sense.
