Fix for vagrant keys permission issue

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

Tim threw together a vagrant setup for Kitsune based on what Alex did in November. I went to give it a try but I'm using vagrant 0.8.10 and it died.

Important part of the error message was:

`read': Permission denied - /var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/vagrant-0.8.10/keys/vagrant

Issue is documented at

My fix was to do this:

saturn /var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/vagrant-0.8.10/keys> ls -al
total 24
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4096 Jan 11 20:00 .
drwxr-xr-x 10 root root 4096 Jan 11 20:00 ..
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  821 Jan 11 20:00
-rw-------  1 root root 1675 Jan 11 20:00 vagrant
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 1464 Jan 11 20:00 vagrant.ppk
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  409 Jan 11 20:00
saturn /var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/vagrant-0.8.10/keys> sudo chmod 644 vagrant
saturn /var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/vagrant-0.8.10/keys>

That fixed it for me. Figured I'd document it so that I could find it again when I bumped into it again.
