Description Charles R. Anderson 2004-10-14 16:21:23 EDT
Description of problem:

authd's postinstall script creats an ident user and group without
specifying the statically assigned uid/gid values that are documented
in /usr/share/doc/setup-*/uidgid and have been used in the past for
this account with the old pidentd package.  This causes a dynamic
value to be assigned which will be different on new installs vs.
upgrades.  The postinstall script should be changed to specify the
98/98 values documented in uidgid.

postinstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
/usr/sbin/adduser -s /sbin/nologin -r ident 2>/dev/null || true



ident           98      98      /                       /sbin/nologin
