LIN6-2550 : host UID/GID contamination

Created: Dec 5, 2013    Updated: Dec 3, 2018
Resolved Date: Dec 18, 2013
Previous ID: LIN5-5470
Found In Version: 6.0

Severity: Severe
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 6
Component/s: Build & Config


make usb-image produces usb.img with UIDs and GIDs from the host, when the host happens to have the same group and user names as in the target.  You can verify this with ls -n -l

Steps to Reproduce

Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit, OVP RCPL-10 (close to current)

wrlinux-x/wrlinux/configure --enable-board=intel-xeon-core --enable-rootfs=ovp-ovirt-node --enable-addons=wr-ovp 
make usb-image-loop
sudo mount -oro,loop,offset=$((133120*512)) export/usb.img /mnt
ls -l -n -d /mnt/var/lib/libvirt/qemu/channels
expected: 36:36
actual: whatever GID for the kvm group you happen to have on the host.

This is _not_ an OVP defect.
