Too restrictive permissions on some files prevent non-root build(with KBUILD_OUTPUT) [bug 2669]

Date: Thu May 13 2004 - 08:22:15 EST

I still cannot understand which is better to post bugs here or on the bugzilla, so I'll try both this time.

The problem is that several files were not world readable and this prevents non-root builds by using the new KBUILD_OUTPUT variable.

For 2.6.6 the files in question can be found by:
cd /sometempdir
tar xjf linux-2.6.6.tar.bz2
find linux-2.6.6 ! -perm -004 -exec ls -l {} \;

I guess the one that most people need is the linux-2.6.6/drivers/char/agp/isoch.c

To fix your tree you can (safely?) use:
find /usr/src/linux-2.6.6 ! -perm -004 -exec chmod o+r {} \;

No idea how exactly the tarball is build, but there can be a check proces like the above before making it final.
