Description witten 1999-03-21 03:29:52 UTC
File permissions on /dev/dsp and /dev/mixer in Redhat 5.9 are 600 when they should be 644 (to allow non-root users to make use of the sound card).

Michael, I assume that this is incorrect as it should be taken care of by pam-console. If I am correct, please make a note and close the bug.
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-23 01:23:59 UTC
You are most definitely correct. While the current beta doesn't have pam_console fully integrated, the upcoming one will, at which point the permissions will be changed by pam_console by default and the values to which pam_console sets them will be configurable in /etc/security/console.perms Furthermore, the dev rpm is made such that the permissions on /dev/mixer and /dev/dsp is not verified so that folks can set local policies without interference from rpm and so that pam_console doesn't create noise in an rpm -V dev
