Warning about permissions of var/log/audit directory


Pacman says today (while upating):

warning: directory permissions differ on /var/log/audit/
filesystem: 750 package: 700

Should I change manually the permissions of that directory to 700 oder can I ignore that?


Looks like the permissions of /var/log/audit has changed in the new version of audit.
I don’t think that it would cause any issues to leave it as it is but if you want to change the permossions to match those of the new package:

sudo chmod 700 /var/log/audit

Ok, I used google and I got the Info there is nothing to worry about. Developers change directory and/or file permissions from time to time. So I used chmod to set the 700 and all is fine I think.
