           Summary: Wine denies access to Oracle Client install folder
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.1.16
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/datab
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: lineback at toastytech.com

When installing the Oracle DB Client Wine removes the permissions on the
destination folder so it can not be read or written to. 

I have been trying to see if I can get the installer for the Oracle 10gR2 (
Client to install under Wine on Ubuntu 8.04. (Available from here:
) The version 11 client also does the same thing. 

I can get past the DirectDraw issue in bug#11877 and bug#17371 by running the
setup program with the command line "setup -J-Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true"

But then when it starts the actual installation process of creating folders and
copying files, it modifies the file permissions - in such a way that it can no
longer write to the folder, and the installer logs the error and immediately
exits. It should not set the permissions like that. 

Under Windows the installer does change around the permissions on the folder, I
think to ensure SYSTEM has full access. 

Off hand, I have not found a work around because even when I use a mounted FAT
partition the installer under Wine thinks it can still set the permissions.
(The client can be installed on a FAT/FAT32 partition just fine under Windows)

An example of what I am talking about. First from inside Wine just after an
attempted install to the destination home directory of
"c:\oracle\product\10.2.0\client_1\" (starting with a completely clean Wine
folder of course):

Volume in drive C is
Volume Serial Number is 0000-0000

Directory of C:\oracle\product\10.2.0

  3/8/2009  10:56 AM  <DIR>         .
  3/8/2009  10:56 AM  <DIR>         ..
  3/8/2009  10:56 AM  <DIR>         client_1
       0 files                        0 bytes
       3 directories      6,748,340,224 bytes free

C:\oracle\product\10.2.0>cd client_1
Access denied

C:\oracle\product\10.2.0>copy c:\test.txt
Access denied


And then from the Ubuntu command prompt:

nathan at bignathan:~/.wine/drive_c/oracle/product/10.2.0$ ls -l
total 4
d----wS--- 3 nathan nathan 4096 2009-03-08 10:56 client_1
nathan at bignathan:~/.wine/drive_c/oracle/product/10.2.0$ cp
cp: accessing
Permission denied
nathan at bignathan:~/.wine/drive_c/oracle/product/10.2.0$

And additionally, from the end of the log the Oracle installer creates:

INFO: *** Install Page***
INFO: FastCopy : File Version is Compatible
INFO: Install mode is fastcopy mode for component 'oracle.client' with Install
type 'Administrator'.
INFO: HomeSetup JRE files in Scratch :584
INFO: OUI-10125:Unable to write into the Oracle Home you have specified.

I can manually reset the permissions after the fact with chmod, but that
doesn't help because the installer just removes the permissions again the next
time I run it.
