Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3198) debian packaging installation problem when installing for the first time
Date Wed, 14 Sep 2011 16:04:09 GMT


Sylvain Lebresne commented on CASSANDRA-3198:

bq. The comparison to 0.6.4-2 can be safely removed now

Hum, the goal of this ticket is that anyone that have started using the deb package after
0.6.4-2 have /var/{lib,log}/cassandra owned by root.root, which was not intended. So we can
decide that we want to leave all those people with those "wrong" permissions, but it's not
safer to remove the comparison now that it was when the patch was initially committed.

> when installing cassandra through the debian packaging for the first time, there is permission
problem when starting Cassandra.
> Normally, the postinst script change owner of /var/log/cassandra and /var/lib/cassandra
from root to cassandra user.
> there is a problem with the test which verify if threre is a need to change the owner
of these directory or not.
> On a new install, the $2 parameter is not set and the the test is false and the owner
is not changed.
> (simply, i think replace "&&" with "||" might work)
