Summary: kde 3.1.5 - kcheckpass does not have setuid permissions
Product: Gentoo Linux Reporter: Greg Watson (linuxkrn) <bugs>
Component: [OLD] KDEAssignee: Gentoo KDE team <kde>
Severity: normal

Description Greg Watson (linuxkrn) 2004-01-27 06:31:10 UTC
If kcheckpass does not have setuid it cannot verify password.  That causes things like kdesktop_lock to fail to accept passwords.

Fix, chmod 4755 kcheckpass

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge kde 3.1.5
2. try to lock the screen

Actual Results:  
permissions were set to 755 root:root

Expected Results:  
permissions should be set to 4755 root:root
Comment 1 Caleb Tennis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-01-27 10:01:22 UTC
it has setuid on my system, did you do anything abnormal when building the package?
Comment 2 Greg Watson (linuxkrn) 2004-01-27 11:03:41 UTC
No, and there were no errors or warnings with the ebuild either.

Not sure why it wasn't set setuid.

please re-emerge or try a 3.2 kde and see if this problem persists.  I cannot recreate it here.
