The postfix user does not get created.

I just removed (rpm --erase --nodeps postfix) postfix and reinstalled rawhides
postfix (yum install postfix) and the user is still missing. 

I removed sendmail, as I prefer postfix.

I can no reproduce this at all. Do you have some messages in /var/log/messages
for this?

There is nothing the in the log which could explain your problem.

Are you using selinux? Are there any log messages which are selinux related?
Comment 4 mail@romal.de 2006-09-06 13:03:17 EDT

no. SELinux is disabled.

Perhaps it`s a problem with some other package on my machine, it's rawhide after
all. If it is an isolated problem on my installation, we should simply close
this bug.

I tried to reproduce this problem on some machines, but I am not able to.
Comment 6 mail@romal.de 2006-09-07 10:43:13 EDT

perhaps something wrong with my rawhide installation, lets close this bug then.
Thanks for your time.
