Description Daniel McNamara 2004-06-13 11:59:11 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8 Description of problem: Running a kickstart install and trying to do a useradd as part of the %post useradd succeds mostly but something during it causts the /etc/group file to be locked and the users group is not added succesfully. Also makes adding any other user/groups after the fact almost impossible as the group file (and corresponding shadow file) remain locked after the install. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): anaconda-10.0-5 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a kickstart config - Add a useradd command in %post 2. Run the kickstart install. Should succedd without errors 3. Check the system upon reboot Actual Results: /etc/group file will be locked Confirmed by prescence /etc/group.lock Adding further groups will fail due to lock The users group will not exist either Expected Results: users group should be added group file should not be locked Adding groups should not be failed by group.lock Additional info: Tested with also changing the useradd to set users primary group as an existing group. Also fails and results in the group file lock.

I installed FC2 and then tried adding a user. Ran into the group file locked message. The group entry for the user I added during install is in the group file. I removed /etc/group.lock and then successfully added a new user with useradd.

Mid-September please verify if this is still an issue with FC3 Test2.
