test script

Could you pelase check this script? It's used in squid %pre section (run it as
Comment 2 Phillip Jones 2006-03-29 06:09:19 EST
Ok, I think this is the problem:

[root@totally ~]# /usr/sbin/useradd -u 23 -d /var/spool/squid -r -s
/sbin/nologin squid
useradd: group squid exists - if you want to add this user to that group, use -g.
[root@totally ~]#
Comment 3 Martin Stransky 2006-03-29 06:50:33 EST
Do you have the squid user (e.g. any entry for squid in /etc/passwd)?
Comment 4 Phillip Jones 2006-03-29 06:54:43 EST

[root@totally ~]# grep squid /etc/passwd
[root@totally ~]# grep squid /etc/group
[root@totally ~]#
Comment 5 Martin Stransky 2006-03-29 07:00:58 EST
It's the problem, remove this line from /etc/group and check update again.
Comment 6 Phillip Jones 2006-03-29 07:10:40 EST
The update works now.

Should I close the bug or will you guys modify the pre-script to execute useradd
with different switches if "squid" already exists in /etc/group ?

I'll fix it in rawhide...
