Ticket #7999 (new defect)
Vm doesn't start if /usr is a symbolic link: "Failed to load VMMR0.r0 (VERR_SUPLIB_WORLD_WRITABLE)"
|Reported by:||gschmidv@…||Owned by:|
I've got my /usr directory in /more/usr on an SSD with /usr symbolically linked to /more/usr.
Apparently the check for world-writability is not done on the file VMMR0.ro as reported and also not on the directory /more/usr that /usr points to, but on the symbolic link /usr itself and this link is always mode 777. If I switch to a normal /usr directory the VM comes up fine.
This appears to be a very recent regression as I had no problems with 4.0 Beta.
