Description Stefan Sperling 2006-07-10 19:40:15 UTC
Running 'portupgrade -sf linux_base-fc-4_6' as user in group wheel with the line '%wheel          ALL = (ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL' in the sudoers file fails with a couple of error messages by brandelf:

brandelf: error opening file /usr/mylocal/workdir/usr/ports/emulators/linux_base-fc4/work/usr/bin/db42_checkpoint: Permission denied

The reason seems to be that some files unpacked from the db42 rpm package are not writable:
[stsp@dice /usr/mylocal/workdir/usr/ports/emulators/linux_base-fc4/work/usr/bin]$ ls -l db*
-r-xr-xr-x  1 stsp  wsrc   6.2K 10 Jul 20:34 db41_archive*
-r-xr-xr-x  1 stsp  wsrc   7.7K 10 Jul 20:34 db41_checkpoint*

I originally noticed this error while upgrading all my ports with 'portupgrade -saP'. It has been present since the switch from linux_base-8 to linux_base-fc-4.

Upgrading the package as root works fine.


Maybe a simple chmod after unpacking the rpm could fix this.

A patch with chmod before branding and returning the status quo after 
branding was committed. 

Thanks for the report!
