Dear All,

Sometimes I see that my spot directory owner/permission changed automatically. I mean without my knowledge. How is this possible? Is any application doing this? Did you ever faced such situation?

Just now I changed my sopt directory owner/permission
from
drwxr-xr-x 21 root root 12288 Jan 15 21:50 spot
to
drwxr-xr-x 21 spot spot 12288 Jan 15 21:50 spot

Like this, I remember doing this 4-5 times in last 3 years.

Sincerely,
Srinivas Nayak

Is that in Wary 530 or Fatdog 611?

Mine says:

drwxr-sr-x 11 spot spot 160 Jan 15 11:33 spot

The "s" seems to correspond to SGID, from what I can tell. Never paid much attention to its permissions until today though.

I'm not sure if there are any applications that would do that, but it's possible to get permissions and ownerships messed up, for example, by storing files or directories on filesystems that don't support Linux file attributes, like NTFS. I'm using an older Wary Puppy, which I used to remaster on a Windows partition on my old computer. It didn't have enough RAM to do it all in memory; and back then, I was a newbie and unaware of possible ownership trouble anyway. As a result, all files now belong to root.

Yes, long time ago.
Tried to debug it by adding lots of ls -l / to rc.sysinit or rc.services .
Cannot remember anymore exactly what changed and what the results were.
At that time I tried a lot of /etc/init.d/ scripts that installed there by make install
and also hal and dbus and cgroups.

I had that but it fixed itself or did not make problems .

The installation had been a traditional full install ( PUPMODE 2 ) .

Somewhere else I remember I found some .wine dirs and files in /tmp ,
before the shutdown/boot code had been altered to handle .hidden files in /tmp ,
though I do not use or install WINE at all ,
At that moment I thought, someone tried to install or run Windows programs on that partition ( Virus, Trojan etc ) .
