Description Kjetil T. Homme 2003-03-25 00:29:43 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030206

Description of problem:
the code has been changed to do
open("/etc/nosuchfile", O_WRONLY|O_TRUNC|O_LARGEFILE)
after a failed
open("/etc/nosuchfile", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_TRUNC|O_LARGEFILE, 0666)

this results in errno being EPERM, which is highly confusing, at least to me :-)


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
bash-2.05b-20

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
as a normal user
echo hiya > /etc/nosuchfile


Actual Results:  bash: /etc/nosuchfile: No such file or directory


Expected Results:  bash: /etc/nosuchfile: Permission denied

I don't see this.  Sure there's no file of that name?

Comment 2 Kjetil T. Homme 2003-03-25 14:57:45 UTC
of course I'm sure, and that is actually what bash tells me :-)

(btw, it's annoying that you close the bug as the very first response.  use MORE
INFO NEEDED or something.)

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2003-03-25 15:31:02 UTC
Well, I need more information than I have. :-)

Show me the strace output.
