I know about this, and I do not use them too.

Anyway, there may be another linux app, which behaves in the same way
and which should be run under root.

It won't behave so under linux, because mkdir will report error creating
direcory, which really exists.

both OO 2.0 and 2.3 behave in the same way.

I run skype on FreeBSD and /usr/ports/updating file points that
20071101:
AFFECTS: users of net/skype-devel
AUTHOR: beech@FreeBSD.org

The skype-devel port has been upgraded to version 1.4.0.118. This
requires a sysctl
change to run. After upgrading, please do: "sysctl
compat.linux.osrelease=2.4.20"
from a terminal. Also add: "compat.linux.osrelease=2.4.20" to your
/etc/sysctl.conf to make this change at boot time.

I see.

Well, anyway, may be it makes sense to close this bug report.

It got documented on the net and some one with similar errors will find
it easily on the net because solution is as simple as remove
/compat/linux/tmp it's enougth I think.


PS. I'll nag OO developers a little with this issue -- may be it will be
fixed.


Thank you all,
Gaspar
