Description cookgb 2002-07-20 19:33:02 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020513

Description of problem:
Changing to a static IP address and choosing primary and secondary DNS using
/usr/bin/neat removes read permission for others on /etc/resolv.conf and
/etc/hosts.  This prevents DNS from working and causes problems where the IP
address of localhost cannot be looked up.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start /usr/bin/neat
2.In the Devices tab, edit the eth0 device, setting all field for a "Satically
set IP address" and clicking on "OK" and then applying the changes.
3.In the DNS tab, set primary and secondary DNS IP addresses and apply the changes.


Actual Results:  1.In a terminal window, type "dig".  It will not work because
read permission for general users has been removed on /etc/resolv.conf.
2.Read permission for general users on /etc/hosts has also been removed.

Expected Results:  Read permission for "others" should be set on both
/etc/resolve.conf and /etc/hosts after running /usr/bin/neat and setting a
static IP address.

This bug also appears under RedHat 8.0, which has redhat-config-network-1.1.20-1.
Could you please propagate the change to Redhat 8.0?
Each time I change something in neat is makes /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/hosts
readable to root and root group only, breaking all network connectivity.
