From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050512 Fedora/1.0.4-2 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
/etc/security/console.perms.d/50-default.perms sets the console user as the owner of analog TV cards (v4l devices), but not DVB cards.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install DVB card
2. Login


Actual Results:  Only root can acess the DVB card:
$ ll /dev/dvb/adapter0/
total 0
crw-rw----  1 root root 212, 4 May 19  2005 demux0
crw-rw----  1 root root 212, 5 May 19  2005 dvr0
crw-rw----  1 root root 212, 3 May 18 22:48 frontend0
crw-rw----  1 root root 212, 7 May 19  2005 net0

Expected Results:  The user logged in on the console should have rw access to /dev/dvb/*

Additional info:

Terratec Cinergy 1200 DVB-C card, budget_av driver.

Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2005-05-19 18:34:52 UTC
This is the reason why the console.perms.d directory was implemented. You can
put there a new file which would support the devices for your hardware without
needing to modify the default config file.

Comment 2 Bernd Bartmann 2005-08-14 15:34:09 UTC
Any reason why the permissions for the DVB devices are not set in the default
config file?
