Description Brian Ryner 1999-07-17 02:21:46 UTC
The RPM expects the permissions on /dev/pts (the directory,
not the devices inside it) to be 775.  However when it's
mounted, the permissions get changed to 755.  I haven't
figured out a way to stop mount from changing the directory

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-07-17 03:35:59 UTC
you don't want mount to not change the permissions; it's
a security thing. (look in your /etc/fstab for where it gets changed.)
The permissions on the dir otherwise will be fixed in the next dev release.
