Description Adam 2005-07-02 03:44:41 UTC

Description of problem:
When installing Archive::Zip from cpan, the "make test" fails.  It fails the test when it sets the ziptest directory to read-only yet Archive::Zip seems to still be able to create a temporary file.  So it looks like fedora is allowing a directory set to read only, be written to.

Here is the code of the 'test' it's failing, allowing you to write to a read-only directory:
Archive::Zip::setErrorHandler( \&error );
ok(mkdir('ziptest'), "Create ziptemp directory");
ok(-d 'ziptest', "Does ./ziptest exist");
ok(chmod(0400, 'ziptest'), "chmod ziptemp directory");
my $fh1;
my $name3;
eval { ($fh1, $name3) = Archive::Zip::tempFile("ziptest"); };
ok($@, "Test that tempfile() failed");
is($fh1, undef, "Test correct returns from failed tempFile call" );
is($name3, undef, "Test correct returns from failed tempFile call");
ok(chmod(0700, 'ziptest'), "chmod ziptemp directory to cleanup");
is(rmdir('ziptest'), 1, "Remove ziptemp") || diag $!; 
ok(! -d 'ziptest', "Was ziptest deleted?");

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter CPAN ">cpan"
2. Type "install Archive::Zip"
3. Watch the test part fail.

Fedora is not responsible for CPAN installations, which you use at your own
risk, so I have to mark this NOTABUG.  If you want Archive::Zip conveniently in
FC4, you could just run 'yum install perl-Archive-Zip'.  The package is a
standard component in Core.

Comment 2 Paul Howarth 2005-07-02 09:29:11 UTC
I suspect that the issue here is down to running "make test" as root anyway.
root can write to directories that don't have the write enable bit set. Try
building and testing the module as a regular user.

Comment 3 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2005-07-02 21:49:28 UTC

The correct way to report problems in CPAN perl modules
is to use the CPAN bug reporting system which is
located at the following address:

This particular problem has already been reported
upstream.  Please see:

  Bug #13426 make test fail in Archive::Zip 1.15

Additional info

* CPAN: Archive::Zip module page

* Archive::Zip opened bugs

  The opened bugs page can also be reached from the CPAN
  module page. Just follow the "View/Report Bugs" link:

     Links: [...] [...] [View/Report bugs] [...]

    (the README file is a good place to start looking
     for this information)
