Quoting David Mackintosh <David.Mackintosh at xdroop.com>:

> [root at urquell2 ~]# ls -ld / /var /var/lib /var/lib/mysql
> drwxrwx---  32 cvs     500 4096 Oct 30 16:40 /

# chmod 755 /
# chown root:root /

BTW, what package were you installing from centosplus?  If this  
wrecked permissions and ownership on root directory is result of a  
package from centosplus, than it needs fixing ASAP!
