Cron [may be bug with perms]


Hello! I found strange in logs of crontab...
Its may be permission problem, but this machine working with default slackware installation...
Code:
Mar 16 22:01:32 darkstar crond[1736]: /usr/sbin/crond 4.4 dillon's cron daemon, started with loglevel notice 
Mar 16 22:01:32 darkstar atd[1737]: Cannot change to /var/spool/atjobs: Permission denied
Mar 16 22:13:57 darkstar crond[1737]: /usr/sbin/crond 4.4 dillon's cron daemon, started with loglevel notice 
Mar 16 22:13:57 darkstar atd[1738]: Cannot change to /var/spool/atjobs: Permission denied
Machine working on current 13.37

This bug resolved in http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=111982 by change perms to 755 to /var/spool/atjobs

Nope, in the gentoo problem the permissions were wrong for the ROOT directory /.

In slackware, /var/spool/atjobs should be mode 1770, user daemon, group daemon. Now when you changed it to 755, everyone can see who has atjobs, if you still can queue atjobs in the first place (you removed the write bit for group).

By the way, this has nothing to do with cron.
