Was this Failure resolved?

comment:2 by un_spacyar, 4 years ago

I remember this issue from some time ago. However, I retested in hrev50317 (x86_gcc2) and the new textfiles created with the contextual menu (right click mouse over the Tracker), have write permissions for the owner.

Works here too. Fixed then, I'd say.

I have the same problem on hrev50443. I hear over Vision, that the problem is only on directly installed versions (nativ harddisk) and not using virtual machines.

comment:5 by pulkomandy, 4 years ago

That makes little sense. The point of virtual machines is that the OS running inside can't see the difference.

What matters is how your Haiku install was made (built yourself, or from a buildbot) and how it was updated since then. It is a known problem that some buildbots have wrongly set the umask and this leaks into the generated image, leading to files with incorrect permissions.

You can fix the Tracker template easily: chmod 666 config/settings/Tracker/Tracker\ New\ Templates/text\ file

hrev50443 is commit The nightly (x86_gcc2) built from that is It comes from buildbot kallisti5-fedora01.

hrev49600 is too old, it is not stored anymore in the buildbot history.
