10.0.4 takes away write privs for /Applications?
Authored by: sjonke on Jun 22, '01 01:08:46PM

At least, that is what happened for me. After updating to 10.0.4 I could no longer delete, add or replace things in the /Applications folder even though I'm using an admin account. Is this a bug or a feature? If it's an additional security thing, is there a risk in giving the admin group write privileges again?

Not for me:

drwxrwxr-x 22 root admin 704 Jun 22 19:33 Applications

Maybe something else did it previously and you only just noticed?

Never mind

Probably it was unrelated - I just checked and on my iBook I did not lose write privileges, so the write privileges thing on my G4 probably wasn't related to 10.0.4.
