Description Enrico Scholz 2002-09-13 09:46:16 EDT
Description of Problem:

Because this package contains unowned directories, they will be created
with the current umask. When having restrictive administrator settings
(umask 077) ordinary user will not have access to them and can not use

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

| $ rpm -qf /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/Crypt/SSLeay /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/Crypt/SSLeay/CTX.pm
| file /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/Crypt/SSLeay is not owned by any package
| perl-Crypt-SSLeay-0.45-2

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


How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. umask 077
2. make sure that perl-Crypt-SSLeay is uninstalled completely
   (rm -rf /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/Crypt/SSLeay)
3. rpm -U perl-Crypt-SSLeay-0.45-2.*
4. ls -l /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/Crypt/SSLeay
5. start perl script using this module
6. rpm -e perl-Crypt-SSLeay-0.45-2

Actual Results:

| drwx------    2 root     root         4096 Sep 13 15:11 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/Crypt/SSLeay

at 4; script can not find package at 5 and
still exists after 6.

This package has not been cleaned up since then, so likely still needs fixing.
