installation screen dump from installation and an attempt to use screen
Description of problem:
During installation of screen with dnf:
groupadd: cannot open /etc/group
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
f22 x86_64 kde desktoop
Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf install screen
2. type screen on command line
When attempting to run screen:
[root@localhost ~]# screen
Directory '/var/run/screen' must have mode 777.
or, from a normal user account:
[condor@localhost ~]$ screen
Cannot make directory '/var/run/screen': Permission denied
screen starts as per usaual
I guess that this is related to groupadd component.
Did you do anything with /etc/group?
What are permissions of the file?

I guess, it is relevant to RPM.
Did you erase directory /var/run/screen?
I could not image why does not exist.
Is the problem reproducible?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Unfortunately at Fedora 24 I am not able to reproduce this bug. Everything is fine here. Could you please inform me, if is this bug still actual for you? Otherwise, please close this bug.
I've only seen this happen once since the initial bug report. I removed the package and reinstalled it. Thanks much for the feedback.
