Description Alexander L. Belikoff 2000-05-20 15:37:36 EDT
When installed, GNATS creates a new user gnats and sets its home directory
to .../gnats-adm/config . The last component ('config') is a file. The
proper directory would be probably gnats-adm

OTOH, gnats-adm is part of gnats-db package and the separation between
gnats and gnats-adm package is completely bogus due to the shortcomings of
GNATS design, so the problem above is not a big deal...
Comment 1 Tim Powers 2000-07-06 15:19:21 EDT
Gnats is no longer going to be shipped since it isn't maintained any longer. I
thought that it would be a good idea to let you know about this in advance.
