errrrrr.... sry but ive got noo damn clue how that is possible:
im running gmpc here as music player (cvs version from AUR), and my whole music is stored in a music directory, sperated further to artists and albums and ALL is set to "root.root" with 644 permission. so only root should have write reads there or?! :?
the strange thing is: when i create a playlist (and i made shure that gmpc runs as my user detto !) i can save it and it gets stored into my music directory :shock: hows that possible that it has write permissions there? :?
You are sure that the directory itself and not only the files inside the directory are having correct permissions?
Dammit, haven't been here in a while. Still rocking Arch.
Is mpd running as root? The daemon handles the playlists, so it is possible to save them in a root-owned directory if the client has permissions to do so (check /etc/mpd.conf). The default permissions when no password is set allow saving of playlists.
*head against wall*
thx sh___ u pointed me in right direction, here the part from mpd.conf
# It is encouraged to run MPD as # non-superuser. If you start mpd as root # (for example, in an init script), set # this value, then mpd will drop root priveleges # and runs as the user specified. # #user "nobody"
think this will fix it
