Description Enrico Scholz 2002-09-12 23:34:07 UTC
Description of Problem:

Because the mozilla-packages are containing LOTZ of unowned directories,
these directories will be created with the current umask. When having
restrictive administrator settings (umask 077), mozilla will not work.

Another problem occurs when removing packages. Then a lot of orphaned
directories are remaining.

| $ rpm -qf /usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.1/ /usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.1/regExport 
| file /usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.1 is not owned by any package
| mozilla-1.0.1-24


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

mozilla-1.0.1-24


How Reproducible:

100%


Steps to Reproduce:
1. umask 077
2. make sure that mozilla is uninstalled completely (rm -rf
   /usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.1)
3. rpm -U mozilla-1.0.1-24.i386.rpm
4. ls -l /usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.1
5. start mozilla as user
6. rpm -e mozilla

Actual Results:

| drwx------    2 root     root         4096 Sep 13 01:16 /usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.1

at 4; mozilla can not find files at 5 and /usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.1 still
exists after 6.

Is this still an issue?

Comment 2 Kent Baxley 2005-05-03 18:48:21 UTC
I think this is a problem with the latest mozilla mozilla-1.7.7-1.1.3.4
in RHEL 3.  I have an Issue Tracker opened on it now:  72095

Comment 3 Warren Togami 2005-05-12 08:39:58 UTC
