Description Peter Vrabec 2010-05-20 14:39:47 UTC
Description of problem:
Please fix user/group creation in your spec file[1]. There were problems when
(UID != GID) && (UID<200) [2]. For example:
tryitd:x:194:482:TryIt:/:/sbin/nologin

Problem was caused by change/fix of shadow-utis behaviour. useradd does not
create group with same GID as user's UID for IDs < 200 (static/reserved) unless
it's done this way:

getent group qemu >/dev/null || groupadd -g 107 -r qemu
getent passwd qemu >/dev/null || \
  useradd -r -u 107 -g qemu -G kvm -d / -s /sbin/nologin \
    -c "qemu user" qemu


This issue should be fixed as soon as possible. Note, it can't be resolved by
any update once we have RHEL6 GA. Please fix it in Fedora too. thnx.

Comment 1 Tom Lane 2010-05-20 15:16:19 UTC
Hm, isn't the consensus in bug #593683 that useradd should be fixed to preserve the old behavior?

I agree that it wouldn't be a bad idea to modify the mysql spec file to make the group ID be specified explicitly, but I hardly think this is a blocker.

BTW, are you satisfied with the way the postgresql spec file does the same thing?

Comment 2 Peter Vrabec 2010-05-24 10:11:37 UTC
Yes the consensus was to fix useradd. Nevertheless, I recommend fixing spec files too.

Since useradd is already fixed this doesn't need to be blocker.

I think postgresql does user/group creation correctly.
