I perform a pacman -Syu every day. Today I get the following message:
Warning: Directory permissions differ for /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/
File system: 750 Package: 755
When I check the permissions with getfacl, the permissions are 750. I tend to leave the permissions like that, I just want to know if this is correct for clarification.
A package maintainer thinks that 755 is correct, though several packages may say that they "own"
You can check which one was updated recently and see if you agree with the change:
$ pacman -Qo /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d
/usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/ is owned by blueman 2.1.4-1
/usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/ is owned by bolt 0.9.1-1
/usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/ is owned by polkit 0.118-1
/usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/ is owned by systemd 247.3-1
@jonathon thank you for your reply.
pacman -Qo /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d shows (e.g.) : /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/ is included in linux-wifi-hotspot 4.0.3-1.
A quick search in arch-packages, aur-packages, github and the rest of the internet didn't gave a reason to change the rights.
I hope I'll remember when I have to do some changes.
