Description Peter Bieringer 2004-03-19 09:41:09 EST
Description of problem:
In case of user squid cannot be added during installing RPM, many
things going wrong.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Let passwd,group,shadow,gshadow in lock state (*.lock)
2. Install squid


Actual Results:  Problems, squid claim about user squid doesn't exist
on start

Expected Results:  Catching the fault

Additional info:

Problem is around here:

# rpm -q --scripts squid
preinstall scriptlet (through /bin/sh):
/usr/sbin/useradd -u 23 -d /var/spool/squid -r -s /dev/null squid
>/dev/null 2>&1

-> missing error catching if user cannot be created
Comment 1 Jay Fenlason 2004-04-05 17:25:56 EDT
I included a patch for this in the latest rawhide squid rpm
