Description Matthew Miller 2005-05-09 08:56:48 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050504 BU Linux/1.0.3-1.3.1bu45.3 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
The 'named' user and group are created by the bind package. So if you try
to rebuild this on a machine that doesn't have bind installed, you get:

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jeffr/rpmbuild/BUILD/system-config-bind-4.0.0/po'
for f in *.py ; do                                                           \
  mkdir -p
  install -p -o root -g named -m 0754 *.py *.py[co] system-config-bind.glade
install: invalid group `named'
make: *** [install] Error 1

An easy fix would be to make bind a buildrequires, but that seems a bit off. Maybe it'd be better to just make it not try to set the owner and group, which won't work anyway when not building as root.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to rebuild rpm when bind hasn't been installed

Actual Results:  Fails as above.

Expected Results:  Should build.
