#2670 closed bug (fixed)

Directories created using Tracker have wrong permissions.

Priority: normal Milestone: R1

Has a Patch: no Platform: All


When a directory is created through Tracker, its permissions bits are set to 777. Maybe it is not respecting the default umask? Anyway, creating a directory through the terminal creates it with permissions 644, which are more like it.

How is that incorrect? Directories use the execute bit to indicate that traversal is allowed. If anything, 755 or 777 would be correct, 644 is definitely not.

Yes, I meant to say 755 and they are created with 777.

From a quick glance, FSCreateNewFolder just uses BDirectory::CreateDirectory(), which does indeed hardcode the permissions:

        // create the dir
        status_t error = _kern_create_dir(fDirFd, path,
                S_IRWXU | S_IRWXG | S_IRWXO);

Where are you expecting it to pick up the permissions from?
