Description francis+rhbz 1999-03-16 22:48:47 UTC
/usr/games/robots is setgid games, so that it can get write
access to its high scores list (/var/lib/games/robots-roll),
but the list is 644 rather than 664, so it isn't writable.

This is moving to powertools, but the problem still applies.

Comment 2 Mike Maher 1999-03-19 17:38:59 UTC
