I have mandriva 2006, and a few programs such as gcc, g++ can only be executed by "root" the the group "ctools"
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 Dec 19 2005 gcc -> /etc/alternatives/gcc*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Dec 19 2005 /etc/alternatives/gcc -> /usr/bin/gcc-4.0.1*
-rwxr-x--- 1 root ctools 110344 Sep 7 2005 /usr/bin/gcc-4.0.1*
An easy fix would be to open up the permisions of gcc, any reason why I should not be doing that ? Why did mandriva close permissions of gcc, g++ ???
