Description fileland 1999-05-27 06:06:02 UTC
the default perms on the minicom binary do not allow it to
create lockfiles in /var/lock since /var/lock is not world
writable +t.  5.2's minicom was set gid uucp as this would
allow it to create lock files in /var/lock

bad news: normal uses cannot launch minicom
