Re: Emacspeak 13.0 post-install




Raman -

Strange.  As unpacked from the distribution tar file, the directories
under realaudio have permissions 700.  They are installed with "cp -r"
which should not add any permissions.  (root's umask might take away
permissions.)  The subsequent "chmod -R go+r" updates the permissions
to 744, which is where they are left on this system.  What's the
sequence on a RedHat system?

FWIW, this is my version of cp:

  cp (GNU fileutils) 4.0l
