I was just running a zypper patch this morning to Box #2 below, and as
it was installing the patches, this came up:

Additional rpm output:

/usr/bin/Xorg: cannot verify root:root 0755 - not listed in
/etc/permissions


I looked it up and it says there is a bug for this,
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=770832

But none of it makes sense to me. What are "0755 entries"? How might
this affect my system?

This means that "/usr/bin/Xorg" is owned by root:root with
permissions=0755. /etc/permissions appears to be used by suseconfig
and chkstat, my guess is that it has no entry for "/usr/bin/Xorg". It
most probably does not affect the running of your system at all.

This is correct.

Please just ignore this message.

It is meant as a local-only (!) hook to give out setuid root permissions
if a knowledgeable user really really needs it.
