Description of problem:
The tomcat5 packages try to install files with group tomcat. This group does not exist on my machine. Investigating the problem, I find that GID 91 is currently used by a group called tomcat4, possibly left over from previous packages.
Perhaps the packaging should do something about that? (erase it?)
By the way, the 2>/dev/null in the script completely hides this important detail from the user.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Works for me for the latest packages. Closing this bug.
