Failed to execute child process "/usr/sbin/iotrace" (Permission denied)
I found this in warning in
dmesg of OI 2017.04 Live USB medium:
mate-session: Could not launch application 'iotrace.desktop': Unable to start application: failed to execute child process "/usr/sbin/iotrace" (Permission denied)
/usr/sbin/iotrace shell script is missing executable bits.

Hello, pkg search -rp gives that iotrace is part of the system/install/media/internal package, pkg info -r says "Services used by the installation media" in the description, pkg contents -r says that it is a package specific to jack/jack user, for use on Live media, so it is not ,so to say, OI post-installation bug, once when installed on disk since it is package only on Live media.
Surely someone else could send explanation why that message is in the log.
'jack' user is supposedly unprivileged user, but can use sudo/pfexec to elevate right if booted form live media, unless 'jack' lacks some rights for RoleBasedAcessControl (RBAC) in /etc/user_attr .
Try issuing iotrace with pfexec/sudo.but I suppose that does not stop Live media to be functional.
