Startup script ownership
« on: March 07, 2012, 11:03:34 PM »
By default TC creates the zero length files in /usr/local/tce.installed with 775 permissions and root.staff owner. However startup scripts are mixing 775 and 755 permission and root.staff/tc.staff ownerships.

As far as I remember latest official was tc.staff and 755. What is the story now?

Hi bmarkus
According to the WIKI page:
Quote
Important step before you move on:
chown -R root:staff /tmp/package/usr/local/tce.installed
chmod -R 775 /tmp/package/usr/local/tce.installed

Yeah, but keep in mind that Robert tends to draw a line in stating that the Wiki is community driven. To me that means that I personally don't take the Wiki as gospel. IMHO it's rather an indication of what someone (not necessarily a member of the Core team) found appropriate to publish at some point in time. That means it might be outdated or was potentially never correct in the first place. OTOH I pay due attention to forum posts by the respective Core team members. So I think an answer here to the OP question would still not go amiss.

Hi maro
OK, if you check the   submitqc   script used to audit extensions written by JasonW, it matches the WIKI.

Rich got first.

He already has stated this problem under TCB talk; Topic- File/Directory ownerships changed in /home after reboot, a week ago. http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,12672.0.html

There he gleaned that some system startup script is interfering. And also wanted to check setupHome() function in tc-funtions, which he spoke to me as having a recursive chown command:
for  /home/"$USER"/

I have not been able to check it for now. But now this issue has been observed by bmarkus as well. I don't have the knowledge of past, as I became serious with tinycore with ver. 4.3 only; though I first came across it no less than two yrs back. Me tragic !

Pelase discuss /home ownership in a different thread, it is offtopic here. It is about only startup scricpts in /usr/local/tce.installed.

OK. It was because I have not yet gone through entire Tinycore structure yet.
