I am trying to make sense of /var/log/*. I noticed the following peculiarities: - user.log is 0640. However, aren't "user" messages possibly relevant to users? If so, I suggest making the file 0644. - uucp.log, mail.* and news/* are 0644. I would say that these should be 0640. - why is dmesg 0644? This is not really a problem, but do users need access to the boot messages? I would appreciate comments... -- Please do not CC me on mailing list mail. .''`. martin f. krafft <email@example.com> : :' : proud Debian developer, admin, user, and author `. `'` `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing a system Invalid/expired PGP subkeys?
