Description sven.jonsson 2009-03-08 18:55:29 UTC
The directory /usr/share/fortune/off/ was created without execute permission when I installed "offensive" fortunes today. This stops all users except root from the pleasure of seeing the "offensive" fortunes.
chmod +x /usr/share/fortune/off/ fixed my system, but I think it should be corrected properly.

Reproducible: Always

I tested as user with:
fortune /usr/share/fortune/off 
fortune -o

and both worked fine.

It would be easier to debug if you specify complete package and version info.

Please post your emerge --info and the fortune package in question. Reopen this bug when you provide the necessary information. 
Thanks :)
