BUG: Permissions problem when adding files to filemap

Reported by: ottomaddox@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc: olegb@…

Description

I have DP installed with the default owner:group of root:admin, and permissions 775. I am in the admin group, so evidently, this means I should be able to install ports without using sudo.

The default permissions for files under /opt/local/var/db/dports/receipts is 755. This means that when I do a non-sudo port install, the installed/activated files don't get added to the filemap. This does not trigger an error, but DP registers the port as installed. So the files from the port get installed under /opt/ local/bin, etc, but DP doesn't know that they're there. Therefore, DP has lost knowledge of these files and uninstalling the port doesn't remove them.

No, we don't support this. DP installations can either belong to the user or to root (you can choose this with --install-user configure parameter), but they cannot belong to several users.

If this is a feature you want, please file a request.
