Description Ralf Corsepius 2006-12-15 04:02:35 EST
Description of problem:

I am seeing this message during bootup:

Unknown group "netdev" in message bus configuration file

According to a debian bug report

this is caused by /etc/dbus-1/system.d/avahi-dbus.conf
mismatching with the system setup.

And indeed (according some hints in the Debian PR), adding a "netdev" group to
/etc/groups (groupadd -r netdev) really silences this warning.

Though I only know very little about avahi, letting the avahi rpm issue
groupadd -r netdev
inside of the rpm's %post section probably is an appropriate approach to resolve
this issue.
