Description Göran Uddeborg 2013-09-28 12:14:01 UTC
Description of problem:
When installing the flow-tools package, I got error messages about the group "40" already existing.  As a consequence, the creation of the user id "flow-tools" also failed, and /var/flow-tools wound up being owned by root:root.

According to https://git.fedorahosted.org/cgit/setup.git/tree/uidgid the GID 40 is reserved for the group "dip", used by the package "ppp".  (And that was the group I had in my /etc/group.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
flow-tools-0.68.5.1-10.fc19.x86_64

Steps to Reproduce:
I haven't tested from a clean install, but these two commands ought to trigger the error again:
1. yum install ppp
2. yum install flow-tools
