Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 84143
kandy can not lock device, needs to use lockdev
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:31 EST
Description of problem:
minicom uses /usr/sbin/lockdev, but kandy tries to create lock file direclty and
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure minicom to access any serial port as user (no need to have anything
connected) and verify that there is not "permission denied" errors.
2. start kandy and point it to the same serial port
kandy pops up an error dialog.
This is still there in Fedora Core devel
I also reported this upstream - see
Upstream maintainer wrote (in
http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=80228) that he does not have acces
to a lockdev-based distro and he would like to get a patch.
I fixed the bug in upstream CVS. Expect the fix to appear in next KDE and a
following Fedora release. I will consider backporting this to 3.4 though.
