Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8610
xawtv not as component in bugzilla, xawtv bug:v4l-conf not installed suid root, led font not installed

-xawtv is not available in bugzilla as a powertools component
Real bug: there are 2 problems with the xawtv 3.0.6 rpm in rawhide:
-v4l-conf is not installed suid root, this causes overlay mode to fail,
and makes xawtv mostly useless.
-An unrelated problem is that the led font which is distributed with
xawtv is not installed by the rpm.
I am fixing the LED font problem now.
You must run v4l-conf as root. It has not been security audited, and thus will
not be SUID root.
I understand, but v4l-conf is not called by me (the user) but by xawtv itself,
I believe it was specificly designed todo the dirty root work for xawtv and
nothing else. But your right.
Any chance you can get it audited somewhere in the future?
