#9258 closed defect (fixed)

last changeset of openntpd is bugged

Reported by: bartusch@… Owned by: developers
Priority: low Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07

  • privsep-user was set to network

There's nothing wrong with that idea but the way it was done introduces a bug:

  • the script in /etc/init.d/ntpd was not changed to that particular user, thus the awk command fails. It still tries to find the ntp users home dir.
  • even if that is changed, too, it wont work. the network users home dir is /var. ntpd checks home dir's permissions for 700. If we do that to /var, erg, I'm not really willing to think about what might happen.

Anyways, the way it is now, openntpd wont work. I reverted that changeset for myself but I can't figure out an easy way to port the user from ntp to network, sorry.
