/usr/libexec not owned by any package
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:30:58 EDT
Description of Problem:
The /usr/libexec directory is used by a lot of packages but not owned by them:
| $ rpm -qf /usr/libexec/* |wc
| 22 50 516
| $ rpm -qf /usr/libexec
| file /usr/libexec is not owned by any package
Although this directory is not specified by the LHS, it should be owned by a
base-package like filesystem or glibc-common (please reassign if the latter
seems to be more properly).
Orphaned directories are a nuisances on package-removal and in the hands of a
paranoid sysadmin who uses 'umask 077'...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Will be fixed in 2.2.0-1.
