I recently wanted to use pod to update the path of a framework.
Cocoapods is installed and can be find here :
But surprise! It is set to root only access :
ls -l /usr/local drwx------ 504 wheel bin/ drwxr-xr-x@ john staff include/ drwxr-xr-x@ john staff lib/ drwxr-xr-x root wheel share/
So I can't use pod because in any case :
- pod install realm
heeeyy dude, you can't access pod cause you are not root .!.
- sudo pod install realm
heeeyy dude, you can’t use pod as a root! .!.
I feel that this folder shouldn't be set as 'root only' because:
- It is in the env PATH of the usr
- gem install pod in it?
- http://www.tldp.org/LDP/Linux-Filesystem-Hierarchy/html/usr.html basically says :
'/usr/local' is widely regarded as a good place in which to keep self-compiled or third-party programs.
I know Linux isn't a BSD but still, it doesn't look that much different no o.O
Finally here are my questions:
- I searched and there is no user with the uid 504, is this suspicious?
(I checked it with ""dscacheutil -q user | grep 504"")
What are suposed to be the rights and owner on the folder?
Is there someone who had the same problem?
Any idea about why this happened?
