Ok, admittedly, I think I may have already created those directories the first time I ran
the package.
I tried installing the package on a different computer and it worked, setting the directories
to the correct permissions.
However... I removed the package using apt-get remove, checked to see that /var/lib/cassandra
was gone (which it was), removed /var/lib/cassandra (because it was still there), then reinstalled
the package.
This time the directories had root as the owner.
How could the behavior change like that between two installs of the package?

> I installed Cassandra using the Debian packages as described here: http://wiki.apache.org/cassandra/DebianPackaging
> When trying to start Cassandra using /etc/init.d/cassandra start I get this error: java.io.IOError:
java.io.IOException: unable to mkdirs /var/lib/cassandra/data
> The directory /var/lib/cassandra exists, but the directory /var/lib/cassandra/data does
not.
> I would assume the data directory should have been created with the correct permissions,
but it was not.
> However, I tried creating /var/lib/cassandra/data and setting it the permissions to 666
and setting the user/group to cassandra/cassandra, and now I get this error:
> java.lang.AssertionError: Directory /var/lib/cassandra/data is not accessible.
> So what could possibly be the problem here?
