Summary0005557: Files on CentOS 5.7 DVDs have uid != 0
DescriptionWhen CentOS DVDs are loopback mounted on a running system, several of the files are owned by UID 500, which show up as either "500" or whatever username has UID==500 on the current system. It most likely doesn't affect installs and purely cosmetic, but could be confusing if files are copied from DVD media to populate a local mirror, etc.

Note that this differs from upstream images; I suspect upstream uses "-r" in the mkisofs command, and CentOS uses "-R". (See "-r" option in mkisofs manpage). Suggest using "-r" in the mkisofs command for CentOS media.

This appears to be on track to be fixed in CentOS 5.8.

CentOS 5.8 has now been released and the files on the CentOS 5.8 CDs/DVDs are now owned by root as suggested. Thank you for your feedback.
