Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 979781
put default user in systemd-journal group
Last modified: 2013-09-19 16:24:30 EDT
Unprivileged users cannot access messages, unless persistent log storage is
enabled. Users in the 'systemd-journal' group may always access messages.
Systemd has to do everything its own way. Being in the wheel group isn't sufficient to access the journal logs, so we should also add the default user ('fedora', bz #971439) to systemd-journal. (And we should probably also remove it from 'adm', the previous group used by systemd for a similar purpose.)
I'm reluctant to do this before bug 864623 is fixed. Showing authpriv messages to a non-root user by default is very much not desirable.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 20 development cycle.
Changing version to '20'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Unbeknownst to me, this was fixed in cloud-init for F19.
Um, yeah. Very sorry about that "unbeknownst".
