Syslinux and /tmp permissions

April 11, 2008 — BarryK
As justGreg and Marv noted, when running syslinux in the Universal Installer, it outputs a warning message that /tmp has unsafe permissions. A strange message I think, but anyway, Marv found that 'chmod 1777 /tmp' fixes it.

Barry, Sorry for getting off tangent here. I just read that AbiWord has just come out with a new version, 2.6.2. Would you be including it? How about Gnumeric? All the best.
