[Slackbuilds-users] atop pacct log group

i noticed the the /var/log/pacct file is rotated to group 'root'
with 640 privs, wheras the atop binary is sgid to group 'utmp'.

since the README does instruct correctly; it implys atop will fail to
use this feature after the first run of logrotate since atop package install.
(which is very probably my fault)

to fix it:

   cd /var/log
   chgrp utmp pacct*

and apply the following patch to /etc/atop/psacct :

<       create 640 root root
>       create 640 root utmp

Sorry 'bout the err,
