There's bug (feature?) in wget 1.8.2 where any wget from an ftp source
that resumes to an existing file (-c flag) gets chmod'd to 0600. If
you're using "userpriv usersandbox" (in portage's FEATURES flag) this
means that any time you ctrl-c an emerge during a download from an ftp
mirror, then emerge again, the resumed file will no loger have o+r
priv's, and therefore emerge will give you an "access denied". The fix
is simple: chmod o+r the file, and emerge a third time. Alternatively,
one could change the default download commands in make.conf to use curl
or something else.
Here's an excerpt from the guilty wget source file:
ftp.c- /* #### Is this correct? */
ftp.c:// chmod (con->target, 0600);
Seems like the answer is no, this is not correct. It is worth noting
that, as I said above, this applies to only resumed files... which is
curious behaviour. I've emailed the wget-bug list, but no one has
responded - so maybe the wget maintainers want to take a look at this,
and patch it. Or maybe portage should make sure o+r is set when
userpriv/usersandbox is being used.
